Synopsis
A brother brings home a vampire bat that he has captured from a cave. It turns into a beautiful seductress and hypnotizes him into introducing her to his brother, whom she desires as a mate. He warns his brother about her, but the brother thinks he is jealous and leaves. He reads up on methods for dealing with vampires and when the woman flies into a cave, he seals it with a cross, and shoots his turned brother with a silver bullet. He is convicted of murder and executed.

Men win on the “Stop the Melody” radio quiz show, an allusion to Stop the Music (ABC, 1948-1955); the mystery tune they correctly identified was “The Soldier's Polka,” by Charles D' Albert (New York, 1860). (Note by Tom Lammers)
