Night Gallery, a TV series that ran from 1970 to 1973, presented strange, interesting and macabre stories that were told in three short story segments and presented to the viewer as looking at an art gallery during the presentation. The first art gallery story starred Roddy MacDowell as a greedy and envious nephew who wants his uncle out of the way. He eventually kills the uncle and later began seeing paintings that showed what was going to happen to him. Each day he would see his life unfolding and leading up to his eventual death. He actually became obsessed with the painting and was responsible for his own death - that was brought about by his fears of the painting. Each week there was a new story with a new painting, which showed what was going to happen during the hour it was on. Another story was about a blind but cruel millionaire woman, played by Joan Crawford who pays for the eyes of a man who was down and out, played by Tom Bosley, so she could enjoy 12 hours of sight. What she sees with her new vision was frightening. Still another art gallery story was about a woman by the name of Molly Wheatland. Molly purchased an old house after her divorce; hoping to get away from the pain and anguish of the divorce. We begin to see her setting the table for a birthday dinner when Joe Wilson, the repairman walks downstairs. Apparently, he was doing some repair work upstairs or helping her with some moving details. She has a conversation with him and tells him that she's setting the table for her ex-husband, Charlie and asks Joe to stay for coffee. During the coffee she talks about Charlie to Joe. When he gets up to leave, she asks him about the attic upstairs. Joe says that the room is locked and he doesn't have the key. Molly wants Joe to tear down the door upstairs. Apparently, something happened in the attic 30 years ago and tries to find out from Joe what happened. She told Joe that she was not afraid of anything. Later, it showed why she should have been scarred.
