Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Blaming his daughter Sally (Anne Whitfield) for the death of her brother, Pa Ellis (George Mitchell) forces the girl out of their home. Soon, however, Pa regrets his harsh words and begs her to come back. And on a dark and stormy night some seven years later, a truck driver (Pat McCaffrie) picks up a hitchhiking Sally, follows her directions, and takes her home--where a shocking surprise awaits him. This classic episode was inspired by the centuries-old legend "The Vanishing Hitchhiker."
