THE VEIL starring Boris Karloff

The Veil is the title of an American horror/suspense anthology television series produced in 1958 by Hal Roach Studios. It was a series of creepy, supernatural dramatizations 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. Each episode but one would begin and end with Karloff standing in front of a sinister-looking, roaring fireplace, inviting viewers to find out what lies behind "the veil."

Hailed by critics as "the greatest television series never seen" because The Veil was never broadcast. Troubles within the studio resulted in production being cancelled after only 10 episodes when the production company went into bankruptcy and this was considered too few to justify sales to a network or to syndication (the last episode called "Jack the Ripper" had been produced by another studio and was acquired by the Roach Studios). In the late 1960s, footage from several episodes was combined to make films that aired on late night television. All 10 episodes were released to the public in their entirety for the first time in the 1990s and have subsequently been released on DVD. The quality of this set is exceptional....a good 9 to 9.5 which is very high and we have added two additional tales of horror to bring the collection to a total of 12 great shows.
