Bette Davis stars in yet another memorable performance
7 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

In 1958 I was seventeen and how fondly I remember this episode starring Bette Davis. I recall how stunned I was at the surprise ending and to this date would like to find a DVD copy of the episode. For a young man with one year left until High School Graduation, this stunner of a show introduced me to a new idea in cinema: the flash forward. To say any more would be to diminish the suspense of this episode. Bette plays frantic in this exercise of confusion and possible foul play. The ending 'blew my mind' as I dare hope it would today if I could find a copy of this "lost" episode. Davis gives her usual fine performance in what was then a coup for TV to get a famous star for a one shot episode of a weekly series. Highly recommended and remembered fondly.
