- LAST STOP: OBLIVION
Original Airdate: February 12, 1961
Synopsis. En route to Denver, Bart and Laura Nelson spend the night at a stagecoach station run by Nero and Verna Lyme, an amiable couple with a deadly pastime: They sniff out wealthy passengers and kill them for their money.
“Last Stop: Oblivion” is a taut melodrama that is enhanced by the inspired casting of Buddy Ebsen (The Beverly Hillbillies, Davy Crockett, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Barnaby Jones) and Virginia Christine (Mrs. Olsen of the Folgers Coffee commercials) as the deadly Mr. and Mrs. Lyme.
