    • Host: Good evening, and welcome to Night Gallery. A potpourri of paintings slightly atilt and left of center. As is the case with our first selection. This picturesque background is rural America. Its central figure, a young schoolteacher. But this is where the commonplace ends. You're about to join a roster of students in a learning experience quite without precedence. The painting is called Dark Boy, and this particular repository is called the Night Gallery.

    Notes (1)

    • This episode is based on the short story "The Dark Boy" by August Derleth. The story was first published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction (February 1957).
