    This one started out pretty good, but the farther along it went the sillier and more preposterous it became. Aidman somehow falls into a job (doing something or other) just to further the plot, even though his employer is someone who is notoriously suspicious and difficult. Then the discussion of the sonata seems to revolve around the notion that the physical difficulty of playing a piece is the key point in music. And the hands...they look goofy enough dangling from the guy's wrists, but they are truly absurd to see shimmying across the floor. And of course the idea of murderous disembodied hands is as old as Noah's Ark. At least the cast struggles gamely to do well by this mishmash, with Rolfe appearing properly off-putting and theatrical, Aidman giving his usual concerned and earnest performance, and Court taking on a role which must have seemed rather familiar to her, that of the innocent bride who drives all the men around her mad with jealousy.moreless

    • Boris Karloff: Cruelty has a human heart. Jealousy, a human face. Terror, terror has the human form divine. Tonight we shall see how one man's cruelty and jealousy create a terror which can scarcely be considered human. And which waits silently, malevolently, beneath the lid of this teakwood chest. That's the name of our story, "The Terror in Teakwood." Join us now as these others did who had the misfortune to learn what it contains. Mr. Guy Rolfe, Miss Hazel Court, Mr. Charles Aidman, and Mr. Reggie Nalder. Oh no, I can't permit you to leave, you've already learned a great deal too much. I can only suggest that you get a grip on yourself.
