Yep, and it was Ann Sothern's actual daughter, Tisha Serling, who played the young woman he was after.

 

Saaay....ya know who around here could play the Arthur Kennedy part in a remake of that episode?

 

Uh-huh...our own DGF!

 

(...well, he DOES keep sayin' he likes the "younger ladies" some 30 to 40 years his junior out there, RIGHT?!)

I'll bet if he ever got really close to Tisha he would have had a

heart attack despite all his jumping jacks (Kennedy's character,

not DGF). I haven't seen that one in a while, but it seems to me

he was wearing socks with his sneakers. C'mon dude.

Well OF COURSE "Kennedy's character not DGF", Vautrin!

 

'Cause DGF is more into that whole Spin Classes thing.

 

(...although word from Philadelphia is that he'll sometime resort to doin' those jumping jacks when his access to those stationary bikes is blocked somehow, like when his bus is late and he misses the class)

Considering the older man younger woman plot of that episode,

Down Goes Frazier might have more than one meaning, but I won't

go into detail.

Yes, I couldn't remember the exact plot of the one where he kept bothering

the couple in their motel room, so I went back and watched it on YahooView.

Even if he was on the right side, he was still pretty creepy. I checked and

Bob played the husband who was buried by Judith Evelyn in the episode I

mentioned. I thought it might have been him, but wasn't sure. You can't

not see him if you watch just about any TV show from the 1960s.

 

 

Seems he lived on that show. I didnt remember it was him but I did remember Judith Evelyn in the role. I havent watched that one in awhile...

It was quite funny, her worship of Martha Mason, I believe that

was her name. I think Judith Evelyn was in another episode

of AHP, but I'm not sure. I'll go to IMDb and take a look. She

was very good in the movie star one.

Yes, I think she was. I cant remember it though. Some actors seem to have made a good living on anthology shows...

I checked on IMBd and she was in one other episode in the

first season. The plot is kind of complicated, but as soon as

I read it I remembered it. Long to short, she bumped off hubby

and stowed him in the basement of the apartment building.

No wonder some people don't like to go into dark basements.

LOL. I've probably seen it, but it doesnt ring a bell right off. I doubt there are many I havent seen at this point with the reruns shown on cable tv..........

I'm sure you have. The story is somewhat complicated, though it's

really just the old wife kills husband plot. I've seen them all, though

I've forgotten the details of quite a few. Over the years it has

showed up on a few outlets. Great show.

I'll look out for it the next time it pops up.

It is from the first season, not sure what place in the first.

Joe Mantell is also in it. And if I recall it correctly, a baby

carriage plays a part in the plot.

Sounds familiar........They've been showing the early shows lately. But I dont know if they show them in chronological  order or not.

Maybe I'll reveal the plot through twenty answers. Mantell plays the

guy who owns the local small grocery store and he runs it with

his wife. It seems to me that in the first season the letters in the

title cards were very big and thick and somewhere in that season

they got smaller and less stark.

No, dont reveal it! I'll probably remember it once I start watching it. But I dont always. They showed one with a very young Joanne Woodward a couple weeks ago. And a classic one with Constance Ford home alone with a bad lock and a serial killer at large as well. I always enjoy watching that one.

Oops. I'll stop right there. Yes, I remember the one with Constant Ford.

That was one of the best creepy killer at large ones. I think I also recall

the one with Joanne Woodward. She played the wife of a guy who needed

money and went over to his boss' house and ended up killing him or

saw someone else kill him. I think Biff McGuire played the hubby, but I

could be wrong.

Yep. But it was Skip Homier who played Joanne's hubby. I thought Joanne was a natural blonde, but apparently not her later lighter shade. She was a dishwater blonde in this one.

 

Yes, the Constance Ford episode is one of my favorites. I'd forgotten just enough about it so that it was almost new to me. I'd forgotten who the "baddie" was! There were plenty of creepy candidates....

Skip. Biff. Whatever. Yes, it was Skip, my mistake. Skip was usually

a little more tight wound than Biff was. From what I remember of

that episode with Constance Ford, her place was just a few steps

above Ralph Kramden's apartment.

LOL. Yeah, they were similar looking and both appeared in several episodes on that show. It could've been in the same bldg! Rather seedy looking. Connie did a great job in that episode.

No way.

Couldn't be. You know I thought I remembered who the killer

was, but the more I think about it, I don't remember exactly.

I'll have to watch it to make certain. It is one of the best

of the early AHP episodes.

The ending makes perfect sense after you watch it, but I dont want to give anything away........

I just took a quick look at a synopsis and the culprit was the

guy I first suspected and his trade gave him the perfect

entry, especially during a crime wave. I thought there might

have been some kind of delivery type who did it. It's been a

while since I saw it.

Had it been made some years later, they could've done a gender switch with Reta Shaw who was appropriately menacing......
