Marsha White is looking for a gold thimble as a gift for her mother. She can't find it anywhere in the store and an elevator operator suggests she try the 9th floor. She arrives there to find it abandoned but a sales clerk suddenly appears and has just what she is looking for. On the way back down to the main floor, she realizes the thimble she bought is scratched and goes to the complaints department where she is told there is no 9th floor in the building. She is shocked however to see a mannequin that looks just like the woman who served her. A return to the absent floor reveals the explanation to her dilemma. Written by garykmcd

'Miss White, are you happy ?'
18 November 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Visually striking and compellingly atmospheric addition to the anthology. One YOU WILL REMEMBER- THAT I PROMISE ! Nice contrast between Anne Francis as the central character, Marsha, and Elizabeth Allen as the very mysterious sales assistant on the 9th floor of a department store (which only has 8 floors!).Anne Francis excels here as the infant-like woman becoming frightened. Miss Allen (best known from John Wayne film 'Donovan's Reef') exudes mature, confident,glamour perfectly for her part. 'The After Hours' is a positive victory for skilled execution of a story over the story's implausibility. For those of you who find it a little too far fetched I can only say I felt a bit like Marsha did every time I walked past the London Dungeon.
