Season 1, Episode 5
A solid entry in the Thriller series. Mary Astor [The Maltese Falcon] plays Rose French, an aging actress who has been out of work for quite some time and hopes to restart her career. She is offered a job in California and, several days later, is found dead. The plot eventually takes a surprising turn which I didn't see coming but after the "twist" is revealed fizzles a bit to a quite predictable ending. Darn! This one could have been great but it doesn't quite get there. Again, it would have been a better film in the 30 minute range rather than 50 minutes. Still, it was an enjoyable little thriller.
Director Arthur Hiller, who also directed Episodes 1& 2, is definitely in his element with this kind of filmmaking. He always gets solid performances out of his actors and has a nice sense of pacing of action and drama.
