Storyline

A ruthless tycoon takes extreme measures to try and force an old lady to sell her property, only to discover that the obstacle standing in his way is the woman's unusual talent for gardening. A funeral home director ends up having his hands full when a vampire makes plans for his own funeral. A couple stop at a roadside diner, where they encounter a jukebox that plays only one song: a tune connected to a tragic romance that took place at the diner years ago.

'Green Fingers' - Elsa Lanchester plays a widow who lives alone and takes pride in her beautiful garden. Unfortunately, a real estate developer(played by Cameron Mitchell) wants her land, and resorts to putting her out by force when she won't sell, but doesn't realize how close to her garden she has grown... Effective tale with two fine performances and a memorable finale.

'The Funeral' - Monsters attend the "funeral" of one of their own, putting the parlor owner on the spot... Amusing if silly segment.

'The Tune In Dan's Cafe' - Story editor Gerald Sanford wrote this ghostly tale of revenge involving a haunted jukebox and a gorgeous redhead(Brooke Mills, who steals the show).
