"Lights Out" was one of the earliest shows on television and was a bit like "The Twilight Zone" merged with a monster film. In other words, it was a horror anthology series--and you need to cut it some slack because of when it was made. So, in "Beware This Woman" when you hear really crappy organ music, remember that the show is just a tiny jump from old time radio shows--where crappy organ music was the norm! Also, the fact that the camera-work is very bad--again, chalk that up to how the show was hastily and very inexpensively made.
The show begins with a woman (Veronica Lake) approaching some professor to see if he can help her get rid of a poltergeist. While the spirit is not malevolent, it IS very mischievous and annoying and she's tired of it. As for the professor, he's a very rational man and insists that it is NOT real--but does the poltergeist believe this, too?! The film has many cheesy moments NOT based on the earliness of the show. Calling Lake's character 'Miss Device' (???) and the cheap jokes make this a show you'll either love or hate. I was just left kind of flat. However, take heart--there ARE some really cool episodes of the series that are available for free download at archive.org.
