Another unwise comedy episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE, EFFECT AND CAUSE tells the tale of a scatterbrained young woman who has a passion for painting. Unfortunately the woman is also an accident prone figure as seen in a series of groan-inducing slapstick routines, but in addition she has weird things constantly happening at her home. It soon transpires that her paintings have the power to influence reality, and she must decide what to do with her gift.

Susan Strasberg was a well-known actress of her era (her father was Lee Strasberg, who ran an actor's school that pretty much all of the most famous actors around went to) who started out in the likes of Hammer's psychological thriller A TASTE OF FEAR. I guess she had to pay the bills in her later years which is why we see her appearing in this piece of fluff.
