Trivia

Jerry Goldsmith is credited as composer on this episode. It is his music but he did not write a score for it - music from other episodes of his was edited together to create a score for this episode. In the business you'd say this episode was tracked, not scored. See more »

Goofs

Arguably not so much a goof, but a rather fortunate event. During the intro sequence by Boris Karloff, the curtain moves around a lit candle only to be rather unnaturally pulled away by some unseen force or more likely, an unseen member of the crew. See more »

That Sappy Blonde Got on My Nerves
2 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was so dull and talky. First of all, the curse had little foundation (that we could see). When the two die at the beginning, what is the reason to damn people for centuries. One of the women now haunts the old house and the Melvyns can't move on. Should they produce an heir, that person will be damned like they are. One of the men and his wife who live in the castle are interesting. But the others, his brother and this overly optimistic, one dimensional blonde girl just slow things down to a trot. There is wind and lightning in her room when the weather outside is actually calm and warm. She sees the woman but no one believes her. The men mope around. I don't get it. And what's this maid stuff? Why is this girl the one who breaks the curse. It was just dumb.
