Saw this one coming after the face mold was made. Alleged supernatural happenings, but all ultimately explained rationally. Bears an obvious passing resemblance to "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" which also, of course, had a rational explanation.

Andy

Predictable and yet fun. Just another slightly above average episode.

Davy Joe

An American woman crosses the Atlantic to visit England, only to marry unexpectedly. She finds that she looks remarkably like a painting of a woman from the distant past. The newly-married woman learns that her "twin" from the past was beheaded and soon, a headless horsewoman begins to visit.

Peter

Not a bad story, but why is the plot obvious to all but Mary. This to the point of silliness.

Jeff Bakoulao

After a whirlwind romance, and American woman marries an aristocratic Brit. When she moves into her husband's manorhouse, she is haunted by a headless specter on horseback who bears a striking resemblence to her.

Mackie Garouche

Decent story, but it is not one of Hunter's strongest performances.

Jasper Q.

In a whirlwind romance, an American woman marries an English aristocratic stranger. In his castle, she sees a portrait of one of his ancestors who looks virtually identical to her. Legend has it that this ancestor was beheaded by her violent husband and now haunts the grounds. An enjoyable episode.

Chris

Yes, the murder plot was obvious to all but Mary but c'mon, she was a newlywed! I thought her show of absolute trust to her new husband was perfectly natural. And, yes, the face mask thing telegraphed their plot pretty well (but only to the listeners). The twist ending regarding a death was particularly suitable, and I smiled broadly when hearing it.

Mike

It was an okay episode, but I found it interesting news at the end about $20 million of art (what would it be worth now?) as well as more information on Watergate as an ongoing investigation (I was only 5 at the time and so I don't remember that at all).

Alec

Heard this one years ago but for got how it ended. Loved it.

Ross

This episode features actress, Kim Hunter, famous as 'Zira" in the original 'Planet of the Apes' movies of the 1960's and 1970's.
