Good Night, Dear Heart – November 9, 1957

Sam leaps into Melvin Spooner, a mortician in Riven Rock, Massachusetts. When a young German woman is found dead in a nearby lake, Sam sets out to prove it was a murder and not a suicide, and gets just a tad obsessed with her in the process. Marcia Cross, who would go along star in Desperate Housewives and have a storyline featuring Scott Bakula in its final season, guest stars.

Sam Fain and Dennis discuss the episode – its hat tip to the 1944 movie, Laura, the controversy it created in the gay community when it originally aired, and how one of the installments of the short-lived comic book series attempted to right that wrong.
