This week, host Craig digs up the dirt Hollywood Confidential-style on two booze-soaked Twilight Zone classics, “The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine” and “A World of Difference,” episodes featuring real-life spouses Ida Lupino and Howard Duff. Keep an ear out for an earnest exploration of the historical significance of the pinky ring, not to mention the thrilling return of Dr. Reba Wissner. And speaking of spouses, Teresa pipes in with her usual wifely crunchiness. There’s a pretty heavy film noir vibe going on up in here, so tread lightly and trust no one.
