In Ealing Studios’ influential prototype for many a horror anthology, Dearden directs Mervyn Johns as a man whose unsettling premonition cues others to recount first-person disturbing tales. The Lady Vanishes alumni Googie Withers, Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne, and Michael Redgrave star for, respectively, Hamer in The Haunted Mirror; Crichton in The Golfing Story; and—saving the best for last—Cavalcanti’s seminal chiller The Ventriloquist’s Dummy.
