Friday's Favorite OTR

Quiet Please: “The Room Where the Ghosts Live” 1/12/48

Like all the best episodes of Quiet Please, this is a quietly scary story that builds up tension to a satisfying conclusion.

A man moves into an old house. When he hears someone banging on one of the interior doors, he opens it.

This lets the Revolutionary War-era ghosts out. He can hear them and even talk to them when it’s dark, but when the lights are on there’s nothing to be seen.

One of the ghosts is (or was) a woman. The man falls in love with her. But the curse on the house means no living man can live there. There’s no way to two can be together.

Or is there?

Great episode. Ernest Chapel was the lead actor on Quiet Please, taking on a different role each week. His ability to step into these characters and give believable, understated performances was the show’s main strength.
