Strange Carey Wilson short has him on a movie set of a supernatural movie when someone decides to tell him a story stranger than what's being shot for the movie. A doctor father has two sons. One becomes a concert pianist while the other becomes a doctor as well. The three are out driving when they're involved in a terrible wreck where everyone appears to be fine except the pianist who has a crushed hand. The father is about to perform the operation when he drops dead leaving the other son to do the job but he doesn't know anything about that type of operation. Soon something happens. I won't ruin what happens but this shorts isn't nearly as entertaining as one might hope. The events of the entire story are quite interesting but at the same time this series has had a lot more interesting events. I'd also argue that the screenplay doesn't really know how it wants to handle the material and this makes for a rather uneven film. Wilson's narration is good throughout though.
