In "The Green Lorelei," a writer becomes obsessed with the siren song coming from the apartment above him.
As the episode opens, Roger Adams explains that he writes mystery and horror for the pulp fiction mags. For that reason, no one really believes his story about his upstairs neighbors..
Roger lives in a rooming house in Los Angeles. His work hasn't been selling, so he is behind on his rent. He is out of ideas, out of money, and his land-lady is threatening to evict him at the end of the week.
It was then that Roger became aware of the voice of the woman in the apartment upstairs. He had heard her sing before, but now he realizes that has never seen her. Roger suddenly decides that he must see her. The woman with the remarkable voice must be something worth seeing.
Roger makes a clumsy attempt to meet his upstairs neighbors, but it doesn't work. The man claims that his wife is dead, and that Roger didn't hear anyone singing.
Roger knows the man is lying! Why? Roger must find out. He must see this woman for himself...
