      Wilkie Collins, and Nelson Bond

Our host presents a trifecta of trepidation: first, an occultist is murdered by his nephew; second, a gambler is forced to slumber in a strange bed; and third, a murder suspect eludes the police by hiding in a museum with a unique exhibit.

Ida Lupino was one of the few female directors working in Hollywood during the early days of television. Her ample body of work includes not only several episodes of Thriller but also episodes of genre classics such as The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and Bewitched.
