SYNOPSIS

‘This memorable episode of the iconic TV series (scripted by the show’s creator Rod Serling and holding more than a passing resemblance to Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death) sees Robert Keith as a dying millionaire doling out justice to his grasping relatives during an ominous Mardi Gras in New Orleans. In one of her more emotionally charged TV assignments, Lupino’s characteristic focus on the human rather than the macabre ironically renders the bizarre finale that much more affecting.’ – Melbourne Cinémathèque
