Shocked at seeing Margaret O'Brien as a fat old lady
I recall this episode from "Tales from the Dark Side" because it starred Margaret O'Brien as a mature Black Widow spider mother. I hadn't seen her in many years and was shocked to see how heavy and old she had become. Some of that was make-up but some of it was due to the passage of time which of course comes to all of us. I remember seeing Margaret O'Brien paper dolls and coloring books and she even had a Capitol Records album where she read "The Three Bears." Then I later saw a few pictures of her where she lost weight and still had that cute smile. The other thing I recall about the episode was where they showed a brief shot of "the bridegroom". His face was a ghastly white (from all the blood sucked out of him" and there was a web like silk over his face. The scene doesn't last that long, but it does leave an impression.
