Episode Notes
Bette Davis was scheduled to play the title character in this episode but pulled out right before rehearsals were scheduled to begin reportedly because she was terrified at the thought of performing live. Ms. Davis was replaced by Claire Trevor.

Natalie Schafer would later play Lovey Wentworth Howell on Gilligan's Island.
