    This segment of "Night Gallery" boasts intellectual credentials - the script is adapted from a story by the eminent French writer Andre Maurois, whose books include renowned biographies of Voltaire and Marcel Proust. It's a strange, poetic story, quite different in tone from many of the show's most famous episodes - the sort of quiet, understated tale that doesn't terrify or jolt you, but instead stays at the back of your mind. The script translates the story's European sensibility to an American setting very deftly, and Joanna Pettet, an actress of whose talents Hollywood really should have made better use, is fine in the leading role.moreless

    • Host: A most hearty welcome to those of who whose tastes in art lean towards the bizarre. Our first painting submitted to you is an item of real estate, but you won't find it advertised in the classifieds. Oh it's light and comfortable and all together well heated, but there's a chill to the place. So bundle up when you look at this one. Our painting is called The House, and this is the Night Gallery.
