Egyptian artifacts with ancient curses are nothing new; a long-time staple of fantasy fiction. Is the curse real or just a legend. Crime drama; questioned supernatural elements.


This is a re-incarnation themed episode that was just so-so. 3 stars.


An okay episode, but not very memorable. I thought the main protagonist was pushed too hard to be a strong character but had scenes where she was very weak. I also think that old cliché about choosing to go along with something or be left for dead is silly - how do they know the other person won't just say something to get out of the situation and then get back at them later (or get away)?

I am enjoying the website. I listened to the show in '70s when I was a boy. Loved old time radio. Where were the episodes recorded? Chelsea Studio or at WCBS?


Hoping for some good luck, Sir Geoffrey, head of an archeological expedition, persuades singer Diane Elliot, a dead ringer for a dead princess, to accompany the team about to enter a tomb and recover a fortune in jewels. The 4,000-year-old curse on the tomb seems to be more effective than the party bargained for, and Diane wonders if she will have to share a catafalque with the look-alike princess and a ruthless fortune hunter.
