The story is “Devil’s Saint” and a man must prove his love by spending a night in a mysterious bedroom that kills its guests.
The story opens in Paris 1927, at a fancy dress ball in the opera house. Lord Edward and Ilona are enjoying themselves– until her uncle arrives. It is then Lord Edward tells her uncle, Count Stefan Kohari, that they want to get married. The problem is that Edward and Ilona have only known each other four days. Count Stefan Kohari isn’t pleased. So, in order to “cure” Edward of this infatuation, Count Stephan invites Lord Edward to his chateau, where he has to stay in the “Tapestry Room”. Everyone who sleeps in that room dies! Will Lord Edward survive the night or will he die too?
“The Devil’s Saint” was written by John Dickson Carr. William Spier produced and John Dietz directed. The episode first aired January 19, 1943.
