One of the best episodes from this sterling series...
2 October 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Based upon Elizabeth Walter's short story "Traveling Companion", this neatly-executed tale of suspense easily ranks as one of the high-points of the television anthology series "Ghost Story". Patricia Neal (in an Emmy-worthy performance) plays an ordinary woman, apparently on vacation and staying at a casino hotel, who can't figure out why her husband has checked out and left her behind. Neal's aching vulnerability--coupled with several gripping flashbacks--make for an intense circumstance, as she comes closer and closer to realizing the truth behind her situation. This is the type of scary yarn that can't be expanded upon too much--the thrust of the story would lose all of its power had writer Jimmy Sangster padded it. One-hour was just right to allow the tale to unfold carefully and precisely. All the performances here are strong, as is the direction and the production. As for Neal, she never hits a false note.
