In "Statement of Mary Blake," Joan Bennett stars as a lab assistant who discovers that her boss isn't the wonderful scientist that she thought he was.
As the episode opens, Mary describes the recurring dream that has been plaguing her. In it, she is tormented by the sound of a blind man's cane, tapping and tapping and coming closer from somewhere in the darkness....
With swirls of violin music, we are transported back to the day Mary's troubles began, the day she went to work for the renowned scientist Dr. Gregory Martin. To her, it was a wonderful opportunity to work in Dr. Martin's private laboratory as his assistant, but she soon realized that it wasn't all perfect. Dr. Martin's wife, Lorna, was not a happy woman, yet her husband doted on her constantly.
After a seemingly successful day in the laboratory, Lorna suddenly turns up dead. Can Mary defend herself against the accusations that she is the murderer?
