Hold On To Your Ticket
30 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

MacDonald Carey stars as talented but struggling artist Hector Vane, who has a loving wife(played by Joan Tetzel) but no money, and is about to pawn a prized painting when he is surprised by a new owner(played by John Emery) who has already redeemed the soul of the previous owner, and offers Vane the same deal of money and success in exchange for his soul, but will have 90 days to redeem his ticket, which can be achieved by offering a soul in a portrait, but finding such a subject proves a challenge, and holding on to his ticket even more so... Chilling episode has superb performances by the leads, a sinister aura of dread, and a stunning, pull-the-rug-out-from-under-you ending that will not be easily forgotten.
