In Part One, Edith Miller (Claudette Colbert) tells psychiatrist Jonathan Michael (Kent Smith) of terrifying events connected with the car, of delusions about people of another era who appear mysteriously, and of a driver (Harry Tyler) who bears her frightening contempt each time she rides in the car. Her consuming fear about her delusions concerning the car lead her to believe that she is losing her mind. Psychiatrist Jonathan Michael persuades Edith to take a ride in the car that has frightening connections with mysteriously-appearing and strangely-acting people from another era and its driver.

A cute little eerie mystery drama
1 October 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

At first, I want to point out that this episode was in two parts, two episodes actually, and aired in the GENERAL ELECTRIC THEATRE hour. So it seems that those two were put together to make only one episode for SUSPICION series. Why not after all? It looks like a British story, that could perfectly suit for an UK series. As I said above, this eerie tale is quite interesting to watch. So, don't wait for a crime tale here, but on the contrary expect a fascinating scheme, such this scene when Claudette Colbert gets into a cab where there are already two people to whom she speaks but who don't notice her presence...

I won't tell more because I don't want to spoil the episode, but I would like to see more of those stories. Too rare for me, unless you spend your life to search and watch épisodes...
