When you have a source story as strong as this one, it's almost impossible to screw it up.

All of the versions here are good, but I think the first one from Escape on December 10, 1947 is the best. They just seemed to pull out all the stops on this production. I like how they had two narrators, plus the lead character. I also liked the extra bits of dialog used to flesh out the characters; the time given to the wife character added more impact to the ending, imo. I also preferred Luis Van Rooten's interpretation of the "freed" slave.

having said all that, Vincent Price on Suspense did the best job when it came to a southern accent.Heavy, of course, but not comically overdoing it.
