Pretty nifty trick
19 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Retired Major Henry Rodman has called in the police to investigate a murder he saw committed in neighbor's home. It seems the good Major likes spying on his neighbors with binoculars. March of the Queer Complaints Department is there because the Major insists that the murder was committed by a disembodied pair of gloves. They investigate and even though another neighbor swears he too heard shots, they find nothing amiss at the young couple's home. The wife laughs it off as just being the imagination of a batty old man. After Ames is also taken in by the gloves trick, March explains how it was all done. Although a clichéd bit of magic, it was still pretty nifty. But the episode is a fairly pedestrian one and aside from the Major, none of the characters are particularly interesting or memorable. However, as usual, Karloff's performance still makes it an entertaining show.
