Great segment from season 2
17 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This review is for Green Fingers, a rather memorable, if not dated episode starring Elsa Lanchester and Cameron Mitchell. Since you know the plot by now, I'll skip the details. The flowers that the widow Bowen plants grow up to be rather impressive, as the scenery is better than average(even though you can tell it's on a stage). There aren't many boring moments in this segment, and most of the lines delivered by the actors are easy to understand and very interesting. Mr. Saunders will do anything to knock this old lady off land which belongs to her, but since he's bought all the land around her tiny house, she becomes an annoying pest to him and she won't take any amount to sell the house. The last few minutes of this episode are some of the better moments of Night Gallery's controversial series, especially how Mr. Saunders rambles on and on to the camera after discovering the widow's "green fingers." All in all, one of the better episodes of this series.
