I can still run my mouth at the funeral coffin and after death!
8 November 2012 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Just watched this "Night Gallery" episode from 1971 and it was a good and clever one it was called "Pamela's Voice". It featured legendary and character actress funny lady stand up comedian Phyllis Diller as Pamela a woman who's supposed to be dead. As a matter of fact her husband sees her lying in the coffin and he's thinks that all of her chatter and nagging and not ending talking motor mouth voice has gone away! Guess again he starts to hear Pamela's voice then you see her right in front of him as Pamela makes her white and ghost like appearance in an elegant and proper way! And the talk and chatter from Pamela's mouth is back this poor man of a husband wishes he could probably put a gag in miss Pamela's mouth! You can't keep a woman down this episode was clever and done in a neat paranormal ghostly way it proves women you can't live with them or without them! Plus it was nice to see the work and appearance from the classy and legendary multi talented Phyllis Diller as she shined back in her time!
