This eerie Twilight Zone entry was scripted by Richard Matheson from his own short story "Long Distance Call." In her third appearance on the series, Gladys Cooper plays elderly, embittered spinster Elva Keene. Already nervous and high-strung, Elva becomes even more so when she begins receiving mysterious, cryptic telephone calls in the dead of night. Could this be the work of pranksters, or is Wanda being besieged by the ghost of her long-dead fiancée Brian? Originally scheduled for broadcast on November 22, 1963, "Night Call" was moved to February 7, 1964 as a result of the JFK assassination coverage.
