Storyline

Laura Bowlby is a psychic who is traveling to Hong Kong to reunite with her businessman husband. Upon her arrival, arrangements are made to purchase for her a black sedan. Mrs. Bowlby says she would prefer a different color, perhaps yellow. The car dealer is taken aback, as he reveals that the car was once canary yellow before a recent paint job. While being driven by her chauffeur, Laura begins to hear a woman's voice. The voice tells Laura about a passionate affair. Laura longs for such passion in her life because her husband James is quite unromantic and cold. After some research, Laura finds the woman's house, and also the inscription that she overheard the woman talking about, an inscription that the woman and her lover left in the concrete repair of her fishpond. As Laura examines the inscription, she is unpleasantly surprised to see the initials of the woman along with the initials of her own husband, James. Written by NavyFlyer1325

Has a Hitchcock-like Quality
8 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a psychic ghost story. Seeing Jessica Tandy (Driving Miss Daisy, et. al.) at her youthful best is quite a treat. Along with husband, Hume Cronyn, they are masters of the American stage. This is a simple tale of a woman who begins to be invaded by psychic experiences (voices from the past, in this case). She meets her husband in Hong Kong. He appears distant and cold, considering the time that has passed since last they met. This would have made a very good movie with some more sophisticated writing and a bit more soul searching on her part. She is really left to her own devices and must sort things out herself. The scenes of 1950's Hong Kong are really pretty striking. Still, the episode seems somehow a bit cheap and underproduced.
