Lawrence's "The Long Silence" (1963).

In this 1963 episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, a woman long bedridden (played by Phyllis Thaxter) suspects that someone is trying to kill her. The episode, with a teleplay cowritten by Twilight Zone's Charles Beaumont, is adapted from Composition for Four Hands (in Duet of Death, 1948) by Baltimore-born Hilda Lawrence (1906–76)— radio writer, Publishers Weekly staffer, and an author on the Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone list for Blood upon the Snow (1944).
