Veteran actor Melvyn Douglas made his TV movie debut here as the renowned psychiatrist who brings them all to his elegant estate. Producer/director Norman Lloyd, another veteran actor who had been a member of Orson Welles’ fabled Mercury Theatre and a sometime Hitchcock villain in films and on TV, later went on to star as Dr. Auschlander on “St. Elsewhere.”
