Good Writing and an Imaginative Script
2 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Eddie Albert dominates this episode. He is a bitter widower in a senior center. Heis beset by nightmares which keep him from getting rest. He is sad because his wife was everything to him. His friends try to get him acclimated to his situation, but they have little success. One man, played by Barry Morse ("The Fugitive") bends over backwards but can't break through. One day, a woman appears. She is about his age and in a wheelchair. She is virtually catatonic. The thing is that she is the woman that appears in his recurring dream. There is someone behind a door and there is fire and smoke. The episode depends on what happens between them at that point.
