Peugot makes it obvious that others have left the house under sever circumstances. She finally gets him to admit that these people were convinced the house was haunted. The asking price is so low that it is practically a give away and she agrees immediately to buy it. Of course, interesting things are to follow. The second, "Certain Shadows on the Wall," is the story of a bitter woman who is on her death bed. She is tended to by a man she has known her whole life. He has left his medical practice in disgrace and devoted his time to her.
She forces him to read Dickens to her. It's easy to see his annoyance, but not hard to figure out. When she dies, he will split the inheritance, including the house, with her two sisters. He is also helping the dying process along with some drugs he insists are sedatives. She finally succumbs, there is a funeral, and at that point he begins to size up his new found fortune, caring little for the two sisters both of whom have their own issues. As they settle down after returning from the cemetery, they see what appears to be a shadow on the wall.
It is in the shape of the dead sister, sitting up, hair disheveled. No manner of effort can get rid of it. This is a really good effort at storytelling. MartinHafer 14 March While Rod Serling introduced each segment on Night Gallery and he was a fantastic writer, he actually did not write this series--even though it was often referred to as "Rod Serling's Night Gallery". The show, in general, wasn't nearly as good as "The Twilight Zone" but it did have some excellent horror and suspense stories.
Each episode was broken down into two or more stories--with occasional very short comedic horror stories thrown in as well. It begins with her being released from a sanitarium. Exactly what she experienced to get her there isn't all that clear--it seems as if she's had some sort of a breakdown. She also has an obsession concerning some seemingly mythical house. However, after her release, she is able to find that exact house. What it all means was a big letdown.
In addition, I must say 'enough with the slow-motion dream sequences! I'd rate this one a and that's being generous. Her relatives all remain there at her sufferance--and their lives are pretty grim. They take care of her and put up with her--simply because they are poor and have decided to put up with this invalid--even though they really don't like her.
One of them, Steven Louis Hayward , is a lousy and uncaring doctor, and is actually pretty excited when she finally dies. Naturally, being "Night Gallery" there is far more creepiness to come and he and the other vultures get more than they bargained for at her death. I don't want to divulge more about this plot--but it's full of betrayals and surprises!!
I'd rate this one a 7. The third episode of the series gives us two segments. The first "The House" stars the beautiful Joanna Pettet as a woman just released from a sanitarium. We don't really know what she did to get there, maybe dealing with a breakdown or something. We learn she keeps having dreams of a strange house were she drives up and knocks on the door. It eventually becomes an obsession and soon enough she discovers her dream house. She buys it and is informed that every previous owner hasn't been unable to stay there due to the fact they believe it to be haunted.
As usual twist and turns follow. It's a bit of the confusing side, there's a lot of mystical slow motion and I do mean a lot. Not bad but far from my favorites. The second "Certain Shadows On the Wall" has Angus Moorehead as a sick woman who is being tended to by her siblings her brother a doctor who we later learn is helping her along and her two sisters, there all dark miserable people. The brother we learn is broke and is just waiting for his inheritance. She finally dies and surprise to all her shadow is imprinted on the living room wall and can not be removed.
There's a lot of twists and turns that lead to an enjoyable conclusion. There's a dark Gothic approach to the whole thing, and co-stars Hayward and Hall both do fine jobs. All together an enjoyable episode. Worth the watch for "Certain Shadows On the Wall".
Wow, the spookiest thing about this episode was the price of houses 40 years ago. I'll preface by saying I'm not a fan of narrated episodes. The psychobabble was tedious and boring, but some enjoy that kind of thing, it's just not my cup O tea. They could have kept the narrative but at least made it much more believable and interesting if it was coming from a psychiatrist or maybe a newspaper reporter or something.
Niggling little things like Peugeot being at the house, which has a singular half circle driveway, yet he seems to have parked his car in the tree he was standing under, because it's nowhere to be seen on the road or on the property. Sloppy editing, as she pulls into the driveway for what seems the th time exactly who are those 2 guys you see at 24m30s walking towards the car as she pulls into the driveway of the deserted house? The dolly close-ups were also overdone, like some Jr.
High drama student discovering the zoom function on his camera for the first time. I could keep picking apart, but that might get almost as boring as this episode was. It kept dragging on and the true purpose seemed to be to use absolutely all the stock footage they had shot of Elaine driving the Newport convertible. I fully expected to see the Chrysler logo and a nice jingle play while a voice over told us all about the 8 track player, automatic top etc. The only good thing I have to say about his one is that it just ends, abruptly. No loose ends tied up, nothing explained or terminated. Not that many would notice, I suspect most had already changed the channel or dozed off by the end.
The first segment of this episode, called "The House," seemed like it was put together without much effort and missing lots of information. Did Elaine haunt the previous residents? As if you didn't know, they all moved away because they claimed the house was haunted, has she even haunted the first residents from long ago? Elaine has a consecutive dream that she is driving on a countryside's main road, turns to a different road and finds this beautiful house, she turns the door knocker and then the dream suddenly ends.

She tells this story to her psychiatrist as she is leaving the sanitarium she has been staying at for who knows how long. She finds the actual house coincidentally and buys it, claiming it is haunted, one day the door is knocked on and she runs outside to see who it is, oh my! She finds her own ghost driving away in her red convertible, too late to confront herself.
The second segment of this episode, called Certain Shadows on the Wall, was better.
JH: Yeah, I don't see how a fella can write about something he ain't never done. How do you sing a song you don't believe in? AC : Do the songs come pretty naturally to you? JH: Yeah, yeah. AC : Have they always? JH: Mmm-hmm. I wrote one the other day called "What We've Done to Us," like, "It ain't what I've done to you, it's not what you've done to me, it's what we've done to us.
I don't see him writing a song like that. People say I love misery. I don't love misery. I love a girl that don't love me. AC : Would you say you've had a hard life? JH: I'd say I've made it hard on myself. AC : In what way? JH: In a way that I wouldn't want to blame anybody else for. AC : Have you had hard times with women? JH: I don't want to get off into that. AC : What makes you happy? JH: I don't know. I like the outdoors a lot. I like animals.
When I was a kid, I was always out in the woods, and still am. It's where I go to try to find answers for things that I've done that I shouldn't have done. AC : What do you think about when you're out in the woods? JH: If I've ever been good enough, for my family, or how I failed at things and why I hold on to what I ought to let go, and why I let go of what I oughta hold on to.
And failure. I think of failure a lot. I wrote a poem one time, "Away into the forest I'm longing to be, where the shadows are deepest and no one can see. Like when I'm in the public and I'm singing, I'm always afraid people will make fun of you or something and say that you ain't no good or you're never gonna be nothin', or they call you stupid. I hate that. When I'm in the woods, I'm pretty much in control of it then, or when I'm singing, I'm in control. People ain't gonna come see you play and sing if they're gonna make fun of you.
I'm insecure, I guess.

Really insecure. AC : What was it like growing up around here? My family, we're a very close family. I went to high school here at West, know everybody in town. My whole life is right here. AC : Was it ever important to you to be a big star? JH: Yeah, sure. I think that anybody that ever plays wants to be a success at it. Like my son, he rides in PBR [Professional Bull Riders circuit], and they interviewed him and asked him why he did it, and he said the money.
But the part they don't ever put in the interview is you start out doing something because you love it, then as you grow older, life demands that you be paid for it, or what are you gonna do? Me, I play probably way less than any other, but the fact is, if I were a star making money, there's no obstacles that you couldn't do for your family or your friends.
Money to me takes obstacles out of life's highway. You don't take those obstacles out so you can drive faster, you take those obstacles out for people that you love. That's why I would want to be a star, to have money.

Not for me. I don't give a rat's ass about me. I promise you I don't. AC : Do you think you still could be big? JH: I think my window of opportunity is closing pretty fast. I know that I'm a dinosaur.

I can see some high-powered record producer, they look at me and look at my songs and say, "This guy's good, but he's born too late. JH: A man feels something special for every song he writes. I don't think you could take my music and destroy it any way you did it. People, like it or not, if it's selling or not; people have the basic human emotions, they love, they hate, they love, they hate. You can't deny how you feel in your own heart. Now whether you like to hear Metallica sing about a broken heart, or you like to hear me sing about a broken heart, eventually, somewhere back down the line before all the music, the amplifiers, the instrumentation, the contracts, the people that have anything to do with the music, somebody had to sit down somewhere all alone and say, "God, why are you against me?
What have I done? What can I do to ease the pain? You start that when you're about 12 or 13 years old, and it's the only outlet you have from losing your mind. Then, you get to be 47 years old and you wonder why I didn't get a job like everybody else, why I didn't do something with my life other than chasing a dream until it led me off the edge of a cliff. So when I say I sing because I got to, it's not because somebody's got a gun pointed at my head, it's cause that's what God put in me, and I think it would be a terrible waste if, even in my death, something didn't happen to some of my songs.
I just don't believe God put me on earth to be a complete failure, but then I don't believe he put me on earth to be Elvis Presley either. Who knows what a failure is? In certain people's eyes right now, I'm a complete and total waste, a failure.
AC : What about in your eyes? JH: I think I'm probably pretty much a failure.
AC : Do you think you would have been happier if your life had turned out to be more stable? I've never had that opportunity. Most people get in and out of relationships, it's almost like shuttin' the door, you know: "Well, that's behind you, don't worry. How do you not worry? AC : What do you think about the idea that a lot of the best music comes from a broken heart? JH: Like when you're happy, you want to hear happy songs.
When you're sad, you want to hear sad songs. It oughta be just the opposite.

If in the next instant somebody walked in and said, "Okay James, I'm gonna take care of all your debts, take care of your family, give you money to live on, all you gotta do is sing and keep writing songs," that's probably as close to heaven as I'll ever get. But you know, in an interview, you don't want, "Please let somebody read this so I can be a superstar.
That ain't what it's all about. Like if The New York Times called you right now, you'd go, wouldn't you? AC : Probably, yeah. JH: So, as a journalist, you don't want to be stuck out interviewing people like me the rest of your life, do you? AC : I don't know. This is pretty close to what I want to do. When Hugh makes an angry attempt to try to get into the red room, something is unhappily watching him from the room next door. She sticks around to watch the police investigating the dead body, gripping the wall behind them with a very cold looking hand.
As the series nears its end the ghosts seem to get bolder and easier to see. That big guy in he archway is barely hidden. This one is horribly vivid. In the doorway to the right of the stairs there is a massive man with black eyes, brazenly standing in the light. Initially we thought this might just be a clock, but that shape in the doorway appears to have legs. Clocks do not have legs. Steven was always skeptical about the ghosts in Hill House, but there is one very clearly visible over his shoulder when he returns to his childhood home.
