Ghostly Guardian
30 October 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Gina Gillespie is Priscilla, a lonely little girl still mourning the recent death of her guardian Mr. George, whose grave she visits, leaving a loving note nearby. This seems to inspire Mr. George to follow her back home, and protect her from her unloving and scheming older cousins who care nothing for her, and in fact are actively plotting her "accidental" death, but one by one, it is they who meet "accidental" deaths, as his sister Laura(played by Joan Tompkins) is positioned to be her new guardian... Exquisite episode is a delight from start to finish, with an effective blend of playfulness and menace created by director Ida Lupino. An underrated gem.
