This is the G rated version of the episode where Joseph Cotten kills his girlfriend and then gets caught in a locked room. In this one a prissy old lady, traveling in France, inadvertently goes into the wrong room of a "sleeping" Frenchman and in trying to get out, breaks the doorknob. From then on, it's a battle against her own moral sense and practicality. She is afraid of the scandal that will ensue if anyone finds out she is in the room late at night. She tries waiting in the closet, under the bed, hoping to escape when the man gets up. Unfortunately, morning is a ways off and this exacerbates the situation. There is a monkey wrench in the works and things get even more complicated. All in all, a lightweight episode. Mildred Natwick does well as the spinster, caught in the trap of her own making.
