I'll find a way to get rid of you I'll paint you inside a painting.
3 October 2012 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Just recently watched this classic episode of "Night Gallery" named "The Painted Mirror" it features the legendary Zsa Zsa Gabor back in the day when she was still a sexy lady. This tale takes a twist as it teaches us bad things can happen to bad people you will like the ending.

Anyway Ms. Gabor plays Mrs. Moore a cold and arrogant not caring owner of a local city thrift store shop she's rude to her owner partner and even her customers. Yet all of that is about to change one day when a woman brings in a special painting which is a little out of the norm. This painting can come to life and be scrapped over and literally jumped into! Wait till you see the clever move that's put on Mrs. Moore by the shop partner and lady paint owner. Mrs. Moore's rude nature is brushed away forever. Good episode with a good twist.
