After Nan narrowly escapes getting hit by the train, we hear her voice with two close up shots of her. The first has sun on her lower face, but when the shot changes slightly, the sun is gone. See more »
Of course, there are so many hitchhiker ghost stories. This one is a classic. Inger Stevens has a narrow escape (or so she thinks). She is helped by a service station guy who replaces her tire and sends her on her way. At the site, she sees a man in a gray suit and a slouch hat. He is trying to get a ride. She avoids him but he keeps popping up over and over and over. He is always ahead of her. She does everything she can within her power to avoid him. There is a pathetic to pick up a sailor to help her, but she doesn't think rationally and drives him away. Still the man is there. Of course, there is the classic ghost story ending. Inger Stevens who later died tragically is quite good and the camera angles and the presence of the hitchhiker is ominous. This has always been one of the more talked about episodes.
