"Man of Mystery" is the last classic "Thriller" and probably one of the best contemporary episodes. Based on story by Robert Bloch, John Newland's direction creates creepy moments and dark chuckles. Mary Tyler Moore portrays a gold digger and William Windom portrays one of her stepping stones. Character Walter Burke is given his moments to shine.
"Man of Mystery" also provides Boris Karloff's most effective opening. The clever closing enhances Boris Karloff's legendary image. Don't miss this one!
