Anthology series hosted by Boris Karloff that originally told ordinary tales of crime and mystery, but later became a showcase for gothic horror stories, many of which were based on works by authors such as Cornell Woolrich, Robert Bloch and Charlotte
Episode 04: The Mark of the Hand
A police lieutenant investigates a crime scene involving an eight-year-old girl found holding a pistol over the body of a man shot through the heart. The little girl refuses to talk and a lady, the only eyewitness to the event, claims that the shooting was accidental. Later, when the little girl is accused of trying to kill the witness with a knife, the lieutenant uncovers some surprising information about the lady.
This hour-long anthology series was hosted by Boris Karloff, who each week brought you a tale of spine-tingling suspense. Karloff would open each episode with a brief onscreen appearance (in the tradition of “Alfred Hitchcock… Presents”), setting the scene for the story to follow and introducing us to the cast.
Occasionally the hour was divided into two or sometimes even three separate tales, and Boris Karloff himself acted in several episodes. The earlier entries lean more towards straight mystery and suspense, while later shows deal directly with horror and the occult.
