As Jana and her father are arguing in the study, the camera cuts to a shot of Mrs. Loren sitting in an overstuffed chair watching them. At that moment a shadow passes across her body; it's either a crew member of a piece of equipment - possibly a camera - since there are only two other characters in the scene and neither of them are near Mrs. Loren.

A disappointing entry that begins with a strangely atmospheric air of intrigue and stars the delightful ,talented and tragic Miss Inger Stevens. Some creepy moments like when a robot-maid tumbles down stairs and instantly reacts with a mischievous grin. Yet the promising signs coming from this odd scenario lead to an unsatisfying conclusion. Inger Stevens (also in 'The Hitch Hiker',series one) plays an inventors daughter who suddenly becomes discontent with her status in a 'perfect' environment, waited on by robotic servants. With a little more care in the writing and direction this could have been a good part for her. However ,there is too much outright telling of narrative issues rather than showing, and the ending is one of the worst in the Zone.
I preferred Rod Serling's story from 'Night Gallery' called 'You Just Cant Get Help Like That Anymore' where Chloris Leachman and Broderick Crawford played a crazy couple with robot servants and Lana Wood played a maid.
