  • Having picked a dead man's pocket, Joe becomes convinced that the man wasn't really dead, and may be buried alive.

    An horrific, Poe-like situation seizes one's attention in the second half of this episode, when sneak thief Jeremy Slate finds a card in a dead man's wallet which suggests that his victim may be suffering from catalepsy. His attempts to alert the man's doctor, and the police, come to nothing, and he is faced with the necessity of confessing his crime. This part of the story is very gripping, but it does take a small age to get there - the poverty of the Slate character and his wife (the top-billed Neile Adams, who actually has quite a small part) is laid on thick, as if the story needed padding out, even to its brief length.moreless
