Episode: 2.1 - Room With A View

Image

"A very hearty welcome to Night Gallery, and to a collection of art not found in your average museum. These are paintings that represent life ... but occasionally death as well. Case in point: this canvas here. A bedroom, but with all the cheer and warmth of a crypt. Beneath the paint and the patina is an ingredient called jealousy. Color it a monstrous green - and call the picture, Room with a View."


Original Air Date: December 23, 1970
Cast: Joseph Wiseman, Diane Keaton, Angel Tompkins
Writer: Hal Dresner
Director: Jerrold Freedman

Jacob Bauman is a bed ridden invalid with a cheating wife. However, with the help of his new and naive caregiver, Nurse Frances, he plans to find a remedy for her unfaithful ways.

Diane Keaton's very first role and this is quite a charming little tale. Joseph Wiseman is outstanding as the grumpy, old Jacob Bauman. This is one of the better short segments (short as in between 5-15 minutes, not including the really short vignettes) and it's a treat to see Diane Keaton so young. She really was a looker, even in the days before Kay Adams! I give it an eight.

A short one, but Joseph Wiseman is good at playing the part of the likable old man who manipulates Diane Keaton into killing his wife for him, it's done like a little black comedy. 7/10

Enjoyable tale about a rich, sickly old man and his nurse. It's a short episode and a bit talky but the ending is a nice payoff.

My rating: 5 - Good

As a divorced man I laughed at the "C'mon,you know you love your wife." by the
Diane Keaton character. :lol: Just Luv a happy ending................ :evil:
