Bel Geddes Showcase
20 October 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Episode really functions as a showcase for Bel Geddes, and may have been connected in some fashion to her key role in Hitch's Vertigo, also (1958). Be that as it may, it's well acted, yet also a very slender 30-minutes with not much payoff, at least by series standards.

Lucia (Bel Geddes) relives her affair with the handsome Allen (Rennie) while in a sleepy daze. The daze is meaningful since she and Allen are drawn together by their mutual love of fog and the 'unexpected' that it represents. It's evident that each finds in the other what's missing in their prior romantic commitments—he's married, she's engaged. And indeed, the fog and the unexpected do play a key role in the story, which climaxes with her coming out of the sleepy daze.

In passing—whoever did the story synopsis on IMDb apparently wasn't paying attention since they got the ending all wrong!
