If you want to see this unsettling tale (and as a present to the
reviewer above, should he return), I first saw it on a DVD or video so
you could hunt it down but you can also catch it (chopped into
10-minute segments) on YouTube.
I must admit it shook me up a little when I first saw it, and it has haunted me since. Perhaps unsurprisingly when you know the original story was Daphne du Maurier and Alfred Hitchcock was involved in the "Suspicion" series that it was part of.
I bought it as a present for a friend of mine and never expected to see it again so I am glad I finally tracked it down through Wikipedia. I wasn't sure it was the right film but then up it popped on YouTube and, yes, it is. I love the internet!
What a good surprise to see Betty Davis in such an item. I did not know she played in TV épisodes actually, and believe it or not, she's as good as she was in the old Warner movies. A tremendous story here, with this story just out of TWILIGHT ZONE series, where a woman doesn't find her house as she left it just a couple of minutes earlier. She finds her house with another furniture and with people inside she has never seen before. She calls the police, a cop arrives and begins to ask questions around. All seems to collapse for our female lead who has the feeling to become totally crazy. She tries to explain to the policeman who she really is, that her belongings all over the place have simply disappeared...Intriguing tale, I assure you, folks, a very good, solid story that glues you to your coach. A taut suspenser. Directed by the prolific TV maker and Hollywood vet Johnny Brahm.
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.
