Compelling, Enigmatic Tale
12 March 2015 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Arguably the best episode from this two-season series. "Kraft Suspense Theatre" was a worthy effort in the crowded field of 1950s-60s suspense anthologies (Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Thriller, etc.). What makes this episode stand out is how it leaves room for viewers to draw their own conclusions. The story could go in many directions and by leaving it open-ended invites all sorts of speculation. One possibility I thought was intriguing is how Judy could have had a life of luxury just for the taking, but showed no interest in that at all. Charlotte would have willingly given it to her whether she was her daughter or not. Brenda Scott and Gloria Swanson inhabit their roles perfectly, and you kind of root for each one in their own way. And who can resist a story set on the dramatic coast of Carmel's 17-mile Drive?

Also deserving of mention is the series' opening credits, both the stylized drawings and John Williams' nerve-jangling music. The first season's theme sounds very modern, even half a century later. Why they toned it down in the second season is a mystery.
