The Weird Tailor

Written by Robert Bloch, from his own short story
Directed by Herschel Daugherty
Starring Henry Jones, Sandra Kerr, George Macready, and Gary Clarke
Originally aired on October 16, 1961

In an attempt to revive his dead son, a man who dabbles in black magic commissions a tailor to make a very unusual suit of clothes.

Although more widely known for his role as Martin Peyton on TV's Peyton Place, George Macready is also familiar to genre fans from his various appearances on shows like Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Outer Limits, and Night Gallery. Genre fans should also recognize the face of Henry Jones. A character actor in TV and cinema for nearly 50 years, Jones guest-starred in shows such as The Twilight Zone, Lost in Space, Night Gallery, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, and The Six Million Dollar Man. And screenwriter Robert Bloch is himself ensconced in the genre pantheon, due in part to his penning of the novel on which Hitchcock's Psycho (1960) is based.
