In "Green Fingers, " Elsa Lanchester, who played the bride of Frankenstein, is a wonderful little lady who isn't about to give in to a land developer who refuses to take no for an answer. He tries every method get her to give up her little piece of property. He is putting up a huge array of buildings and she is standing in the way. While he tries his usual intimidation, she talks about her wonderful garden. He is totally insensitive and has only his business dealings in mind. Failing to achieve his goals he hires a hit man to get rid of the old lady. What happens next is quite an experience. Lanchester is fantastic and shows she still had acting chops

In "The Funeral," a strange man, played by Werner Klemperer arranges a funeral with Joe Flynn, an upscale undertaker. After a series of conditions, it is revealed that the funeral is for Klemperer who is obviously a vampire. He has a guest list, including a hunchback, a witch, and other sordid monsters. The service itself is a hoot. For pure fun, this isn't half bad.

"The Tune at Dan's Cafe" has a bored married couple, who are heading for divorce, arriving at a cafe where there are no other customers and a mysterious proprietor. The star is an aged juke box that keeps playing the same forgettable love song over and over again. The juke box has a history and that is played back in increments. It tells the story of a hoodlum and his ill fated romance with a woman who has been under his thumb for a long time. The parallels between the couples is interesting. This is an eerie presentation with many surprises and a very satisfying ending.
