(Boris Karloff's)

"The Veil"

Image

Made in the golden years of television and filled with suspense, this collection is a treat for fans of Karloff, who also stars in nine of the episodes included here.

"Good evening. Tonight I'm going to tell you another strange and unusual story of the unexplainable which lies behind...
...The Veil."


TV.com

25 minutes / black & white
Mono Audio
Originally on: Syndicated
Premiered: September 1, 1958
Last Aired: September 1, 1958

Host: Boris Karloff.
Creator and Producer: Frank P. Bibas.
Executive Producer: Hal Roach Jr.
Directors : Frank P. Bibas, Paul Landres
Original Music: Adwin Astley, Leo Klatzkin

Horror legend Boris Karloff hosted and performed in this never-aired anthology series. Each program opened with the camera entering through a huge archway, pulling in on Karloff who's seated and reading by an oversized, blazing fireplace. Karloff stands before the flames and says, "Good evening. Tonight, I'm going to tell you another strange and unusual story of the unexplainable which lies behind The Veil".

The series was created and produced by Frank P. Bibas, who had worked in television and film since 1950. He had an interest in the supernatural and decided that the supposed "true" stories of the paranormal he'd come across would make for a great series.

The show was made for Hal Roach Studios and filmed on their lot in Culver City, CA. Unfortunately for The Veil, the timing couldn't be worse. Roach's studio went into bankruptcy and the series was never even pitched to a network. The eleven completed episodes never aired as they were filmed until being released on VHS/DVD by "Something Weird" video.

Strangely, the segments did turn up in the 1970's when various episodes were stitched together and syndicated to local TV stations as "movies". They were compiled under the titles Destination Nightmare, Jack the Ripper and The Veil.

Karloff performed in all but one episode. That episode, Jack the Ripper, featured Boris in the usual open and close, but was not shot for the series. It's believed Roach Studios picked it up from an obscure British TV show as a cost-saving move.

Information for this summary is based on the liner notes for the DVD release.

25 minutes / black & white
Mono Audio
Premiered: 1960
Last Aired: Unknown
Veteran horror film writer/director Curt Siodmak created this eerie anthology series.

The shows were set at decaying 13 Demon Street where the host, an unnerving and haggard Lon Chaney, Jr., opened and closed each episode. As he says in the show's introduction, "I am condemned to live here, to suffer on this earth eternally as a punishment for my sin. It is said that no greater outrage was ever committed by any mortal. But should I find a crime more heinous, my terrible punishment will end!"

Chaney apparently didn't as the series never found a buyer and never aired. Produced in 1960 at Stockholm, Sweden's Nordisk Tonefilm studio, an unlucky thirteen episodes were filmed.

At least some of the footage was salvaged when Herbert L. Strock was brought in to piece together a feature film (The Devil's Messenger) from three of the episodes. The host segments with Chaney were discarded and replaced with scenes featuring Chaney as the devil linking the stories together.

Several of the episodes have been released by Something Weird video.

Four episodes are better than nothing but not enough to open a new topic. If someone somewhere or Somebodeez' interested by ripping and sharing the others ...
Would be very welcome !

1x02 and 1x07 have Swedish hardsubbed and come from Anonymous' PC.
Comrade, thank you.

Punky Brewster, I'm off eMule for a few hours. Will be back in a day or so. Let me know if you don't find full sources and I'll put the ones you need back on release as soon as possible.
(I'd be glad to have a bigger pipe yet, but the surgery is coming soon... ;) )

There was another episode of THE VEIL, incidentally, which is NOT on the Something Weird VHS or DVD. It's called "What Happened to Peggy ?" and was included in the old VHS called "Destination Nightmare", which was composed of four segments of the series - the three others were: "The Return of Madame Vernoy", "Girl on the Road", and "Destination Nightmare", all of them included in the SW disc.
When these beautiful 16mm prints were discovered, "What Happened to Peggy ?" was unfortunately missing.
So, the only way (to date) to watch this additional episode is to get the old VHS of "Destination Nightmare". Fortunately, an American dealer put this old VHS on a DVD-R, and I bought a copy recently.
If you are familiar with these old "portmanteau" films composed of several episodes you probably know that the credits were incomplete. For instance, only ONE director was credited, even if each of the four segments was in fact made by a different director... But, however, I was able to recognize the actors in "What Happened to Peggy ?"; they are:
Boris Karloff (as The Host, and "Ira Perry"); Whit Bissell (as Dr. Will Madison); Denise Alexander (as Ruth Cooper); Olive Blakeney (as Mrs. Martha ¨Perry); Frances O'Farrell; Shirley Mitchell.

Are you interested for this "lost" episode ?

This is the link for the "lost" episode of THE VEIL, "What Happened to Peggy".

ed2k: The%20Veil%20-%20What%20Happened%20to%20Peggy.avi  [698.18 Mb] [Stats]

Beware, this link is in fact for the ENTIRE so-called "feature", DESTINATION NIGHTMARE, containing all four episodes which were put together to form this "TV-Movie".
"What Happened to Peggy", the lost episode, is the first one.
I tried to cut off the others, using some programmes like "CutMyDivX" or "VirtualDub" but I'm not really good at these things, so, if anybody could edit this episode from the "feature" it would be OK.
Just after the first épisode, Karloff tells the epilogue for this episode, then there is a short vignette of Karloff again, but (being given my poor English) I'm not sure if this is related to "What Happened to Peggy ?", or to the following episode. So it's probably better to share the entire feature, and ask to one of yours to make the editing.

As you know, the credits were remade, mixing together elements from all four episodes. If someone is able to re-write the credits, the correct cast list is given in my earlier post. But I don't know WHO directed this episode, as the credited director (Paul Landres, mispelled as "Paul Landers"...) directed only the segment called "Destination Nightmare". But of course, incomplete credits are better than false credits !!!
