4 July 2014 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This Amazing Stories episode from season one titled "Vanessa in the Garden" was directed by the legend himself Clint Eastwood and it has a magical and fairy tale theme despite of it's tragic occurrence. The tale is set back many years ago it involves a young artist Byron Sullivan(Harvey Keitel)who works for a rich guy named Teddy Shearing(Beau Bridges). And Teddy wants to enter Byron in a famous New York City art contest only a tragic occurrence happens on the way to the event as it's a tragic horse ride that over turns and kills Byron's wife Vanessa(former ex lover and flame of Clint's Sondra Locke). Soon thru his paintings Byron starts to see images of Vanessa and memories are brought back to life it's like magic paint makes Vanessa reappear! Okay episode despite the tragic tone it's filled with a little bit of fairy tale magic.
