Rinehart's "The Bat" with Helen Hayes (1960).

Yet another adaptation of the successful Avery Hopwood-Mary Roberts Rinehart play The Bat about a notorious killer menacing a household, this March 1960 episode of the Dow Hour of Great Mysteries features Helen Hayes, Jason Robards, and Margaret Hamilton. (See earlier post on the 1959 film with Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead.)

Thank you so much for drawing attention to this program's availability. I saw it as a kid and I remember being pleasantly spooked by it, then read the book in its Dell paperback incarnation. A nice piece of nostalgia from a more innocent time.
