I'm Afraid that Joan is Losing her Mind . . .

The Man in Black was a popular British radio programme of horror thriller stories, all introduced by the mysterious 'man in black.' Actor Valentine Dyall, as the man in black, introduces us to the Clavering family and hints that murder, madness and mayhem lie ahead. Wealthy eccentric millionaire Henry Clavering is a master Yogi . . . His powers of thought and concentration are legendary. His second wife Bertha and her daughter Janice are caustic enough to convince us immediately that they will be the manipulative witches that will cause the mayhem . . . and murder. If evil had a picture, it would be second wife Bertha and her daughter Janice. On this evening Henry is going to demonstrate a deep Yogi trance . . . He will appear to be dead, his heart will almost stop, but his mind will be active, and when his friend taps him in certain spots he will return to normal life . . . But he must have total and absolute silence as he enters his trance . . . If there is any sudden noise or disturbance he would immediately die. . . Of course, I don't need to tell you that witchy wife Bertha 'accidentally' knocks over the fireplace tools quite loudly . . . and Henry drops to the floor, dead. Now Bertha and her witchy daughter Janice will inherit Henry's millions and they won't need to suffer the old fool any longer . . . . Except for Joan . . . Henry has a young daughter Joan, living in Belgium, and surprise of surprises, Henry leaves the bulk of his wealth to his daughter Joan . . . unless her delicate health makes her unable to manage the estate . . . . Bertha and Janice now have another job to do before they get their hands on the Clavering wealth . . . . They must drive daughter Joan insane so that they can gain control of the wealth and control of Joan . . . . And I have no doubt at all that these two ladies could drive anyone madder than a hatter. Is there any way that Joan will survive until her 21st birthday? Maybe the mysteries of Yogi and the mystical mental powers in the Clavering mansion can help the girl keep her wits? . . . . And then again . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
