Storyline

While cleaning out the apartment of his dead cousin Julia, Jim Whitely comes across a strange glass eye and tells to his wife the story of how his cousin acquired it. Julia had fallen in love with a famous ventriloquist named Max Collodi. She had been to all his performances and had sent letters requesting to meet him. One day, Max agrees to meet her. She arrives to his hotel room to find him sitting in darkness with his dummy George. As they talk, Julia gives in to an impulse to touch Max. Written by Anonymous

Jessica Tandy stars as a lonely woman who falls in love with a ventriloquist (Conway) and leaves her drab life behind to follow him around the country and attend all his performances. She begins to write him, and after a time he agrees to meet with her. It is at this meeting that she discovers a terrible secret, and once you witness it, the episode's title will make sense. A young William Shatner in suitable toupee narrates the tale, as the woman's nephew. This framing device occurs when the nephew and his wife are sorting his late aunt's possessions, including a glass eye the wife finds in a jewelry box. Tandy is unforgettable as the naive spinster.
