  • Henry is a repellent suitor, all right, but the glamorous Sheila might do well not to be so rude to him...

    This episode derives from a short story by British actress Dulcie Gray, who also wrote a few detective novels. Although set in an England unconvincingly recreated in L.A. - is that country road one of the upper stretches of Mulholland Drive? - it's a moderately effective yarn which shrewdly doesn't explain anything. Who is this fellow Henry, stylishly played by Norman Lloyd, and how does he have such mysterious power over objects? Lloyd doesn't make Henry simply a pathetic creature, doomed to be humiliated by the arrogantly beautiful girls he pursues - he's really creepy, and aloof Sondra Locke (managing a British accent nicely) is quite right to be alarmed by him. The special effects are pretty bad, but the three lead performances hold our attention.
