Dialogues with Death

Written by Robert Arthur, from his own short stories
Directed by Herschel Daugherty
Starring Boris Karloff, Ed Nelson, Ben Hammer, Estelle Winwood,
      and Norma Crane
Originally aired on December 4, 1961

This episode offers two tales of terror: First, a long-time employee of the local morgue has heartfelt conversations with the deceased. And second, a Cajun Colonel cleverly arranges the comeuppance of his greedy young nephew and the young man's wife.

Series host Boris Karloff stars in both of these teleplays. Though he delivers a very sober and affecting performance in the first, he hams it up in the second. Still, even a campy Karloff is a delight to watch.
