For the benefit of the two or three people who will ever see this episode, it is based on R.L. Stevenson's short story, "Olalla." If you'd like to read it, it can be found here (as of Nov '08): www.litgothic.com/Authors/authors.html.

This episode, and a dozen or so others, can be found on DVD. It is misnamed "Suspense: The Lost Episodes" (they were never really lost, just hiding). Netflix has it. It is very obvious that these segments were aired live, so the quality of direction and performance is wildly variable (technicians walk through shots time and again, and actors occasionally have to riff while someone is stuck during an off-camera costume change or cross between sets). Moreover, they tend to be a tad blurry in spots (well, all right, they're blurry, period, but that's as good as they're ever going to get) but for fans of this sort of thing this collection is a real treasure. Here's hoping more of them turn up.
