"Flowers of Evil" is a rather weak latter entry, whose sole interest is provided by red-headed Italian beauty Luciana Paluzzi, who, like Ursula Andress before her ("La Strega"), would graduate to James Bond before the decade was over. Set in an academy for dead bodies in 19th-century France, Jack Weston (previously seen in "The Cheaters") plays the aging director in love with Paluzzi, who begins to suspect that she may have murdered her long missing husband, because his skeleton keeps turning up to haunt her. She starts plotting to eliminate him with the aid of her lover (Kevin Hagen, previously seen in "The Fingers of Fear"). Director John Brahm cannot do much with the dull script; this has been noted as perhaps the worst of all 67 episodes, judge for yourself. Actor Vladimir Sokoloff, previously seen in "The Terror in Teakwood," had already died a month before this episode's broadcast, with another still to air in April.
