Rocky Valentine is a small-time hood who has been on the wrong side of the law for most of his life. After robbing a pawn shop, he is gunned down by the police and awakens to be met by Mr. Pip, who describes himself as a guide to his new surroundings. Rocky can't quite believe where he's ended up as he can have anything he desires. He's living in a beautiful apartment, never loses at the casino and is always surrounded by beautiful women. What good deed could he have done in life to deserve this. After a month or so however the shine of having anything and everything wears off. Written by
When Rocky kicks the women out and slams the door the entire wall shakes. Then when he is trying to open the door, you can see the wall and door frame moving along with the door. See more »

Larry Blyden plays immoral small-time crook Rocky Valentine, who is running away from the police after a robbery when he seems to have been shot and killed, only to find the smiling face of a Mr. Pip(played wonderfully by Sebastian Cabot) who declares himself his guide in the next world, where at first Rocky is ecstatic in, with all the gambling and women he can take, but after a while the unimaginative Valentine gets bored and dissatisfied, and begs to go to the other place, but Mr. Pip has a big shock in store for him... Memorable episode may now be obvious, but Cabot is superb, elevating this one a couple of notches, and really brings home the sting of the end revelation.
