Movie Info

In the pilot of the television series "Night Gallery" (1970), Rod Serling introduces three separate paintings, each with its own story of uncanny vengeance against evil to tell. The first involves a black sheep nephew (Roddy McDowall) who murders his rich uncle to inherit his fortune - both much to the detriment of the uncle's butler (Ossie Davis) - only to find that vengeance extends beyond the grave. In the second story, a rich, heartless woman (Joan Crawford) who has been blind from birth blackmails an aspiring surgeon and a man who desperately needs money to give her a pair of eyes which will allow her to see for the first time - even though for only half a day's time - only to have the plan backfire on her in ways she never imagined. In the third story, a Nazi war criminal (Richard Kiley) is hiding from the authorities in South America, where he is confronted with his past demons and a curious Holocaust survivor (Sam Jaffe) and finds solace only in a serene painting in a museum, wanting nothing more to enter into that world and stop running.

    Learn the definition of "irony" with these stories from the Master: Rod Sterling. This show influenced all dark fantasy that came after.

    The last segment is okay but the first two are a couple of the best suspense dramas of 70's TV.

    A three & a half star pilot that launched a four star television series. Notable for a number of reasons, including a very young Steven Spielberg directing a "mature" Joan Crawford. Fans of Rod Serling's <i>Twilight Zone</i> series will enjoy this darker, creepier incarnation. *NOTE: If you can get it, the new "CHILLER" tv network carries <i>Night Gallery</i> as well as <i>Dark Shadows</i>, <i>Tales from the Crypt</i>, <i>The Night Stalker</i>, <i>The Alfred Hitchcock Hour</i>, and <i>Tales from the Dark Side</i>(!!!).
