LIGHTS OUT: THE LOST WILL OF DR. RANT {TV} {Short} (Laurence Schwab Jr., 1951) ***
12 October 2013 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

An elderly man desperately seeks an ancient manuscript in order to destroy the last testament of a scholarly relative whose 'eyeless' spirit appears to be haunting him. Despite the obvious limitations one associates with the early days of television, this emerges a rather splendid and memorable chiller (adapted from M.R. James' awkwardly-titled "The Tractate Middoth"); the introduction of female characters into the mix, however, is regrettable. The short is bookended by the interpolations of an eccentric host in the "Inner Sanctum" mold and a young Leslie Nielsen proves to be a most adequate leading man here. Frankly, I have never heard of this particular TV series but I must say that "You Tube" can be a veritable treasure trove when it comes to such fare which, apart from their obvious future historical importance, also serve to store for posterity's sake the pre-stardom efforts of many a famous Hollywood personality!
