From Studio 57,  September 3, 1955, here is the first televised show based on a Richard Matheson story.  The script, written by Lawrence Kimble and directed by Richard Irving (both of whom went on to do much better), is not the best, but the story features Peter Lorre and Barbara Hale, which shouold count for something.  The Matheson story, by the way, was "Shipshape Home" (Galaxy Science Fiction, July 1952).

  1. Oddly enough, I sent the link to this one to the Horror and FictionMags lists some years back, then couldn't find it again on to see it was (likely) still there, and still is now! Not superb, but fun, particularly given the budget Heinz ponied up for them to work with (it was a syndicated show by this point).
