The Veil (1958)

The Veil is an American horror/suspense anthology television series produced in 1958 by Hal Roach Studios. The series was hosted by Boris Karloff, who also acted in every episode but one, and was allegedly based upon real-life reports of supernatural happenings and the unexplained. Ten of the twelve episodes began and ended with Karloff standing in front of a roaring fireplace and inviting viewers to find out what lies "behind the veil." Hailed by critics as "the greatest television series never seen" The Veil was never broadcast. Troubles within the studio resulted in production being cancelled after only 10 episodes. This was considered too few to justify sales to a network or to syndication. In the late 1960s, footage from several episodes was combined to make films that aired on late night television. Ten episodes were released to the public in their entirety for the first time in the 1990s and have subsequently been released on DVD by Something Weird Video. In 1999, "Lifting the Veil of Mystery," a Tom Weaver article on the making of the series, appeared in issue #29 of "Cult Movies" magazine.
