Storyline

The elderly Elva Keen is not too happy when she begins receiving phone calls in the middle of the night. At first the calls are little more that static and her complaints to to local telephone operator, Miss Finch, seem to go unheeded. Over time however, she begins to hear a man's voice but out of fear, tells whoever it is to go away. When Miss Finch reports they've found the problem Elva visits the site only to realize the identity of the caller and that regardless of anything she's said, desperately wants the calls to continue.

Goofs

When Elva is sitting in her car at the cemetery, there's a man's face visible to the left of her head, reflected in one of the car windows, and then it's replaced by a hand twisting something. It is unclear what is being twisted, since the camera isn't moving at the time. See more »

Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: According to the Bible, God created the heavens and the Earth. It is man's prerogative - and woman's - to create their own particular and private hell. Case in point, Miss Elva Keene, who in every sense has made her own bed and now must lie in it, sadder, but wiser, by dint of a rather painful lesson in responsibility, transmitted from the Twilight Zone.

if you enjoyed Gladys Cooper's performance....
22 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...i would recommend "Consider Her Ways", an episode in season III of "Alfred Hitchcock Hour". I saw that episode maybe 20 years ago, but seeing Gladys in tonight's TZ episode reminded me of "Consider Her Ways". After 2 decades, I remember Gladys from a single Hitchcock Hour episode? yea, it is that good.

It was startling, frightening, and perverse.

and Gladys Cooper was amazing in that show, too, as in "Night Calls". She was very convincing.

im sorry, this is not a review as much as my trying to share a gem of classic television.
