  • Murder follows an office Christmas party.

    A tale of inexorable fate, with Joseph Cotten as a killer who gets locked in an office with the corpse of his victim, only to find that he's likely to have to stay there with it over Christmas, when everything's shut. The director of the segment is Robert Altman, no less, here found at the start of a long TV directing career which he rarely discussed after finding movie fame in the 1970s. His handling of the clever story is very adroit and Cotten makes a very solid leading man. The murdered girl, incidentally, is played by Christine White, a busy TV actress of the 50s and erstwhile girlfriend of James Dean.
