I will get you and your love anyway I can!
3 October 2012 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Recently one of my many many digital cable TV channels has started to show old reruns of the classic TV series from the 1970's "Night Gallery". And being a fan of horror, suspense and sci-fi I thought I would check out these classics since I was a fan of stuff like "The Twilight Zone", "The Hitchhiker", "Tales from the Darkside", and "Tales from the Crypt". And this series doesn't let you down although some episodes are hit and miss, still they entertain with suspense and twist and many featured well known guest stars.

I remember one tale that I've saw just recently featuring Sondra Locke(who was a 70's babe and Clint's main squeeze for many years)as a woman who's in a relationship with a desperate man looking for love. And Ms. Locke's character plays a little hard to get. Only this guy has a plan he will give her a nice gift in the form of a mysterious necklace. In my take this necklace has special powers like somewhat of a voodoo control over ms. Locke's character. As now this man has found his girl she can't escape him! Overall good tale it would be great if all of us guys could have things like this to keep our women.
