The Cask Of Amontillado (Aired January 4, 1954)
Many episodes were rather frightening. If the dark, desolate atmospheres didn't get at your nerves, the down-beat endings usually did. A common scene occurred at night, with the crickets chirping in the background. The two protagonists would be lost or running for their lives (or both!). They would hear a far off scream, and they would realize-- along with the audience-- that the friend was a goner. One episode, 'Hang Man's Rope,' never revealed exactly how the killer managed to catch and hang his victims, or why. The only thing we knew for sure was when the crickets stopped chirping and the dog started howling, someone would wind up hanging from the nearest tree. The protagonists spent most the show trying to solve the mystery. THIS EPISODE: January 4, 1954. Mutual network, WGN, Chicago origination. "The Cask Of Amontillado". Commercials deleted.
