    Did anyone else notice the similarities between this episode and “Graveyard Mansion” by The Witch’s Tale?

    I am constantly impressed with the fidelity of these recordings, considering their age. This particular program stars Leslie Woods, a popular radio actress who had played gun molls and other woman. She also played the part of Margo Lane on the Shadow during the Forties. I see some similarities between this story and the Night Gallery show about the mysterious paintings that keep changing. Roddy McDowell played a n’er-do-well who killed his aged painter uncle to get his fortune. The old man’s hobby was painting pictures of cemeteries.
