Incredibly gripping and gruesome
9 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember first watching this in my early teen years and what a gripping instalment of Tales of the unexpected, big time! I seriously had difficulty watching the denouement as I could only think of the worse, as the tension really was about to explode.

Interestingly, Carlos (Jose Ferrer, who was married twice to Rosemary Clooney) pronounced Jaguar as "Haguar". Michael Ontkean is a dead ringer for John McEnroe and if there ever is a biopic of the tennis great, please call Michael. Pamela Stephenson played his girlfriend in this episode, and she made a name for herself as a comedian and a short-lived cast member on Saturday Night Live.

I would love to see any bloopers and outtakes from this episode.
