June Lockhart marries a less than charming, mysterious man.
12 August 2017 | by darrenpearce111See all my reviews

Hitchcock takes a dig at contemporary TV in his introduction. There's an allusion to June Lockhart's series ''Lost In Space'' with him accompanied by robots and I love his oblique reference to ''Bewitched'' to show his usual scorn at advertising.

Hitch talks about TV becoming removed from reality, yet the lack of caution taken by the title character (played by June Lockhart) on becoming the second wife in this story is pretty incredible too. All the suspicion starts afterwards The enjoyment is in following the workings of her mind about this extremely saturnine husband who makes coffins.

Light on story but well played by the two principals.
