  • William Shatner's character tells the story in flashback. Ventriloquist's-dummy stories don't get any better than this! Aired in October, 1957 Emmy winner for "Best Direction."

    Kids my age (then) weren\'t supposed to watch things like \"Alfred Hitchcock Presents.\"
    That, of course, made it more fun to do so.
    Everything about this episode works, particularly the Master\'s building suspense, bit by bit. I was absolutely terrified by the climax, certain that the character shown whipping the horses pulling his coach was coming after me!

    Didn\'t help that it was a cold, gloomy night in Minnesota and Halloween was already in the air!
    Absolutely fascinating, many, many years later, to see such a young William Shatner at work.
    Could this have been one of -- if not THE -- earliest TV show he was ever on?
