Night Gallery: A Question Of Fear & The Devil Is Not Mocked (1971)


Originally airing on Oct. 27th, 1971 this second season episode of the Night Gallery presented the viewer with two tales. A Question of Fear stars Leslie Nielsen (Creepshow) as Col. Dennis Malloy who pits his courage against the boast of of Dr. Mazi (Fritz Weaver, also of Creepshow) that he cannot stay a night alone in the good Doctor’s house where he witnessed something so horrible that his hair was turned white. If he can stay the entire evening and not perish from fright he will be awarded $15,000.

The Second portion of the episode is entitled, The Devil Is Not Mocked, and stars Francis Lederer (Lux Video Theatre) and Helmut Dantine (Hollywood Canteen). Helmut plays General von Grunn, a Nazi officer during WWII…who is confronted by an evil greater than himself.

Retroist Airplane Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Airplane Podcast. On today’s show we talk all about the 1980 comedy hit movie, Airplane! This is a movie that is very quotable. So if you hear people making hilarious movie reference, odds are they are from this film or Caddyshack. On the show, I talk about the pre-production, the writers/directors, the cast and cameos, production and much much more.
