Season 2 Episode 34

An Act of Chivalry

Aired Unknown Dec 01, 1971 on NBC

Episode Recap

A crowded elevator in a busy office building. An attractive blonde woman enters an elevator filled with men, who all politely remove their hats to her as she comes in. The elevator then descends through the building to the thirteenth floor. Waiting to board is a unique passenger: the skull-faced Grim Reaper himself. Adorned in a flowing cape and black hat, the Grim Reaper enters the elevator. As the doors close behind it and it waits to arrive at the ground floor, one man irritable glances at it, gestures at his bare head, and then at the hat in his hand. Getting the idea, the Grim Reaper turns to the blonde, pauses for a moment, and removes its hat... along with its skull.
