Inner Sanctum (Fake) Mister Macabre: actually

 Inner Sanctum episode "No Rest for the Dead," aired 52-08-24, AFRS version, but with very badly distorted sound quality. The "Mr. Macabre" episode name comes from one of Raymond's jokes in the almost intelligible intro. This episode, in good quality audio, is included in the collection.

The episode "Revenge at Harness Creek" suddenly ends with five minutes still remaining.
