    A lesser Twilight Zone episode also starred Jackie Cooper with an evil dummy.

    Michael Redgrave stars in a film of this nature and a still or publicity shot from it is on the cover of his biography that I've just read

    Was the Hitchcock one featuring Claude Rains?
    The one I was referring to was called The Glass Eye.

    That'd be Dead of Night (1945) as mentioned above a few times.



    It's an episodic film and the segment "Ventriloquist's Dummy" is just a part of it. But the whole film is very good.

    That looks a good one, will.

    Of equal interest, though, is the Shat wearing a rug??

    There's definitely something dodgy going on at the top of his head, but he's The Shat. His Toop is like a mighty crown upon his head.



    Thanks for the trailer of Magic, will.15! After the voice over descibed it as 'a terrifying romance' (for that read dog's breakfast of a script) I think I learned everything I needed right there. I don't remember any of it, and I think I know why - what was going on with Sir Tony's acting?



    Does anyone remember Trilogy of Terror? Not a ventriloquist dummy, but it scared the willies out of me...

    Oh, and Devil Doll - so worth watching.

    Was dear old Shat wearing a rug when he was still in his mid twenties?



    Trilogy of Terror third episode very scary.



    I never saw Magic, but that trailer looks awful, never a good sign because they can usually splice together enough scenes to make even a turkey look watchable.

    It's hard to say when the Shat Thatch took root. I can't clearly identify a syrup until Star Trek: The Motion Picture, but there's obviously something happening before that. The easiest way to spot a Toop is at the back of the head when falsie meets natural. Some people make this easier for you by picking a jet back or ginger roof-top over naturally grey hair. Clearly, being Shatner, he has more skillful wigmasters, so clear identification is nigh on impossible. But that's half the fun - Is it or isn't it?



    I just looked at a couple of clips of Magic on YouTube. I can't help but feel very sorry for Ann-Margret having to put in a performance between Sir Anthony Overacting and a lump of wood with eyes. I hope they paid her handsomely.
