Whose Funeral?
31 October 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

First episode of the second season deals with a woman named Mildred Beaumont(played by Judith Evelyn) who has a weak heart and is frequently housebound. Her husband Eric(played by Tom Helmore) appears attentive and caring, as does her ever-present sister, but trouble arises when Mildred has recurring visions of her headstone and funeral, making her think that she will die soon, and as it turns out, she may not be so wrong... Reasonable start to the season has a most time-worn plot that isn't especially surprising, but is directed with style by Ida Lupino. Judith played a similar woman in the William Castle film "The Tingler".
