A TV classic and one of many vintage TV shows that should be put on DVD. Why doesn't US TV bring back the single story format instead of having to run a series into the ground? There are thousands of short stories that could be made into one off films. I have a watchable VHS copy of "The Voice in the Night" that I bought from online somewhere. I agree with the other comment but one correction. The story is actually told by the James Donald character not Coburn, who plays the First Mate of the passing ship, Patrick Macnee is the Captain. The Japanese used the original story again for "Matango" (1963) or "Attack of the Mushroom People" (US Title) a pretty good horror film. It's available on DVD in the original uncut Japanese version. Lot's of atmosphere, mood, and in lurid color.
