Tales of the Unexpected

1979 NR

Children's book author Roald Dahl was also well known for his decidedly adult stories that deliciously blended horror, black comedy and suspense. Each creepy tale stars the crème de la crème of the acting world and features an introduction by Dahl. Topics include cheating spouses, desperate murderers, deadly wagers and greedy con men, and the star-studded cast includes José Ferrer, Elaine Stritch, John Gielgud, Joan Collins and Derek Jacobi.
