(ABC, 1/29/1972, 90 mins). A contemporary Gothic horror story that has a dowager, an ex mental patient, discovering a woman buried alive and screaming for help on the grounds of her sprawling estate, but her family feels that her mind has snapped and refuses to believe the bizarre story in its greed to get hold of her money if she is declared incompetent. Olivia de Havilland made her TV movie debut in this one, with Joseph Cotten replacing Ray Milland in the role of her lawyer, in this adaptation of a story by Ray Bradbury.
