This episode is, amazingly enough, based on a story by A.A. Milne, creator of Winnie the Pooh. Henpecked husband Ernest Findlater (John Williams) dreams of escaping his dreary existence and heading off to the South Seas. During one such dream, a beautiful native girl named Lalage (Barbara Baxley) provides Mr. Findlater with a foolproof plan to eliminate the contentious Mrs. Findlater (Isobel Elsom). Watch for an uncredited Raymond Bailey (aka Mr. Drysdale on The Beverly Hillbillies) as Alfred Hitchcock's psychiatrist in the episode's prologue.
