Barnes & Noble -Though cancelled in 1964, The Twilight Zone remains television's most treasured anthology program. The brainchild of writer/narrator Rod Serling -- no doubt inspired by the pulp comics, novels, and sci-fi films of his youth -- the series introduced its own special brand of weirdness to viewers on October 2, 1959. Five years followed, and The Twilight Zone went through the show business wringer as network executives tried to squeeze more profits from the already successful show. Experiments ranged from cutting costs with six episodes shot on videotape to dropping "The" from the series' title -- but no matter what, rave reviews continued, and every week loyal fans tuned in to enter the infamous dimension of sight, sound, and mind. Episodes included here are:
- "A World of Difference" Ep. 23, March 11, 1960: Arthur Curtis Howard Duff thinks he's an average businessman living a normal life. Or is he an actor playing a businessman in an office that's really a set?
- "Back There" Ep. 49, January 13, 1961: Russell Johnson is Peter Corrigan, a man who travels back in time to the date of President Lincoln's assassination. Will his presence have any impact at all -- can he actually change history?
- "One More Pallbearer" Ep. 82, January 12, 1962: Eccentric millionaire Paul Radin offers the use of his bomb shelter to three people who wronged him. But the price -- an apology -- may be too high.
- "Ring a Ding Girl" Ep. 133, December 27, 1963: Hollywood film star Bunny Blake gets an unusual gift from her hometown fan club: a ring that shows old friends' faces, letting her know she's needed back home, where she's about to play the biggest role of her life.
