Quotes

Roald Dahl: I have a maiden aunt in Norway who was actually rolled out of bed onto the floor three nights running, by a ghost. But then she lives in what was once a very old trysting place. About 400 years ago, they bricked up a naughty girl in the wall of that room: that sort of thing always produces a ghost. If your wife is extremely delicate, and you tickle her to death, that will produce a ghost, too - so you have to be careful. We have another one for you next week at the same time. Good night and ...

Constance Ford grips in "I Heard You Calling Me."
22 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

In one of the few extant episodes of the long defunct, "Way Out" actress Constance Ford takes the audience on a roller coaster ride not soon to be forgotten.

Though accomplished at all types of portrayals, Miss Ford's stock in trade was the vulpine proletariat tart--a woman who will stop at nothing to get where she's going, and doesn't make any bones about it! Consider her a more cerebral, subdued, and streamlined Shelley Winters type.

In "I Heard You Calling Me" she holds the audience in the palm of her hand all the way--it's a real tour de force, inasmuch as she's doing it "live on tape." As the telephone calls from beyond exert their growing menace over her, we watch her go from casual indifference, to hard nosed annoyance, to trembling rage, to nauseated panic, and finally to whimpering, resigned, child like submission--pathetically assuming a fetal position as she drops the receiver to the floor in anticipation of her impending doom.

At a recent screening, all attendees were impressed, most especially an astute 16 year old boy. "We don't have anything this good on now," he remarked as Mr. Dahl sardonically concluded the teleplay.

No, we don't, and the loss is ours. Another forgotten jewel in Mr. Susskind's crown.
