But Korby wasn't really alive to begin with: "Doctor Korby was never here." That turned out to be the whole point.
My favorite part of "Little Girls" was the shot of Christine Chapel the first instant she sees Korby - say what you will about Ms. Barrett's acting ability, she manages in those few wordless seconds to convey Christine's feeling at that moment such that it really comes through the TV screen.
On the whole I prefer "Dagger" because it's a better story and because Adams is a genuinely evil guy. (Mr. Gregory is also great in the Night Gallery
segment "Stop Killing Me" with Geraldine Page.)
