  • Steven Spielberg cuts his teeth with this all time Night Gallery classic.

    10
    If you are a Steven Spielberg fan, the pilot movie of the Night Gallery series is a must have for your video collection. Steven Spielberg was beginning to establish himself as a major league directorial talent at the time this was made, and this episode made people sit up and take notice. Joan Crawford is at her vindictive best as a blind wealthy, heartless old dowager who will stop at nothing to recieve an experimental operation that will give her 12 hours of sight, at the expense of a desperate gambler who will remain sightless for the rest of his life as a result of acting as the doner of the operation. Needless to say, she gets her comeuppance in the plot twist at the end of the story. Great storytelling!moreless
  • The blind shall see! At least for 12 hours and at the sacrifice of another losing their own eye-sight.

    This story wasn't as good as the first, but still pretty interesting. The story is pretty typical, a mean person hurting others to get what they want and getting their just desserts in the end. Even if this may be a common theme in horror, the story is still pretty good. The acting is great, especially seeing Tom Bosley was an added interest. Overall, it is the acting that makes this story a lot better than it may have been with worse actors. It is very enjoyable and the ending is memorable as the rich woman wants her sight to stay since 12 hours aren't enough when you have been blind since birthmoreless
