This episode marks a rare joint appearance by John Cassavetes and his wife, Gena Rowlands. Married to Charles Justin (Murray Matheson), an elderly diamond merchant, young Diana Justin (Rowlands) decides to finance a stage play with her husband's money -- and hires an ex-lover of hers, actor Lee Griffin (Cassavetes), for the leading role. Not surprisingly, Diana and Lee are soon plotting Charles' murder, with a key element of the plot being Lee's impersonation of Charles while pulling off a lucrative business transaction in Europe. What Lee doesn't know is that the late Mr. Justin had performed one last act of retribution before shuffling off his mortal coil.
