The February 15, 1948 episode of Escape presented an adaptation of Algernon Blackwood's classic horror story "Ancient Sorceries." Paul Frees stars as Arthur Llewellyn, a man whom people recognize in a Welsh town where he had never been before. Also featured are Kay Brinker, Ann Morrison, and -- playing double duty on this show as both a cast member and the show's announcer -- William Conrad. Produced by William N. Robson, directed by Norman McDonnell, and adapted by Les Crutchfield, the story was considerably shortened and altered to fit into Escape's half hour format.
