Sebastian Cabot is featured as host who introduces the two episodes. Joan Crawford was also due to appear as co-host, but her scenes were ultimately cut.[1][2] Her segments appeared in the 1970 television film Journey to the Unknown.


"Poor Butterfly"

Directed by Alan Gibson, the first segment features Chad Everett as a man who receives an invitation to a costume party and has no idea why he got the invitation. When he arrives at the party, everyone is dressed like it's the 1920s and they act like it is too. Based on a story by William Abney.


"The Indian Spirit Guide"

Directed by Roy Ward Baker, the second segment features Julie Harris as a wealthy widow who hires a private investigator to protect her from the phony spiritualists she encounters as she seeks out a real one to contact her late husband. Based on a story by Robert Bloch.
