  • A mad surgeon imprisons a man who may have psychic gifts.

    The "Night Gallery" episodes which aimed at being ghoulishly comic were often poor, and their chief virtue was simply that they didn't usually take up much time. This dramatisation of a (rather more stylish) Joan Aiken story suffers, however, from the unusual defect of being too short. We really need to know a little bit more about the Robert Morse character, and to see a few more of his obnoxious characteristics (and to understand him a little more clearly) for the surprise twist to have sufficient bite. The plot slightly resembles the last section of Evelyn Waugh's "A Handful Of Dust"; perhaps Stephen King (a regular "Night Gallery" viewer) remembered it before writing "Misery"?moreless

    • Host: Item number three in the Night Gallery: we call it Marmalade Wine. Look at it, if you will, with gentle, restrained eyes. They way you would look at a maniac in the woods, because that's the story it tells. Hold out your glasses and get ready for a very special nightcap.

    • Blacker: I really must go now. I have a pressing appointment in town.
      Dr. Deeking: I thought you might, but it's out of the question. But don't worry, you'll be very happy here. While you were asleep, I took the liberty of amputating your feet.

  • NOTES (1)

    • This episode is based on the short story "Marmalade Wine" by Joan Aiken. The story was first published in Suspense (September 1958).
