Guest Co-Host: Duane Swierczynski

Originally slated for release in 1955, Paul Wendkos's The Burglar didn't hit theaters until 1957 when one of it's stars, Jayne Mansfield, had gained popularity. The film stars Dan Duryea as Nat Harbin, our titular burglar. He and his crew rob Sister Sarah, a Philadelphia spiritualist, of a pricey necklace.

We'll be talking more about the film, it's screenwriter -- David Goodis -- and the 1971 adaptation, Le Casse.

We're looking at the 1971 film Let's Scare Jessica to Death. Directed by John D Hancock and based on a screenplay by , the film tells the tale of... you guessed it... Jessica (Zohra Lampert) a woman who's back from a time away at an asylum and spending some quiet time in the country with her husband and their friend.

Jessica is plagued with visions of a girl in white as well as a monstrous woman in their local lake. Are the unfriendly people of the country town trying to gaslight her? Is it the strange hippie girl they find living in their house? Or is it something truly supernatural?
