In "A Little Matter of Memory," an English couple find themselves trapped in their home while a maniac-at-large prowls the countryside.
Edward and his wife, Joan, are staying in an isolated cottage on the Moors while Edward convalesces from ill health. One day, while they are out for a walk, they return to find two notes on their door. One is a rambling, threatening letter from a stranger, and the other is a warning from the local curate about a dangerous maniac on the loose. Both the stranger and the curate promise to come back later that evening. How will they know which one is which?
"A Little Matter of Memory" was based on the story by James Helvick and adapted for Suspense by James Poe. James Helvick was a pseudonym for Francis Claud Cockburn (1904-1981), a radical British journalist and novelist. (He was also the cousin of Evelyn Waugh.) Norman MacDonnell produced and directed. Lawrence Dobkin played Edward and Paula Winslowe played Joan. Also appearing were Edgar Barrier, Joseph Kearns, and Richard Peel. This episode aired on September 30, 1954.
