  • Norman Manners is a man looking to kill himself with the aid of the Thanatos Palace Hotel and a young sexy woman named Ariane Shaw (Angie Dickinson)

    Decent episode although I found to be dragging at times. A man wants to kill himself and since he doesn't succeed the first time allows himself to be a resort where suicide killing is the main objective.

    I agree that this episode is very intriguing. The taboo subject of suicide nowadays isn't anything new but back in the 60's this would have been very controversial.

    For the most part it's done well looking at the subject from both sides. Manners doesn't want to live anymore. However, when he meets sexy young Ariane Shaw he starts to develop feelings for her. This is where things get predictable. As Manners agreement with the resort, he must die. When the time comes, however, everyone gets cold feet.

    The ending was sad but expected. I think they might have done it differently. This is an interesting episode to check out.
