Number 1578: Her lover in the death house: “Through the glass I’m kissing you.”
In this case the artist is George Evans, who does a superb job with the space left to him for the illustrations.
And despite some overcooked dialogue and twice-baked descriptions (“The howling wind sang a dirge to the shivering pair...”) in “The Terror of Tarn House” I enjoyed this story from Fawcett’s Love Mystery #1 (1950). I thought it could have made a movie from that era, and the excellent art by Evans would make a good storyboard. A man falsely accused fits right into a Hitchcock style.
