Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
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:
  • "The Big Tall Wish" Ep. 27, April 8, 1960: An over-the-hill prizefighter Ivan Dixon gets a boost from a little boy who's a big fan with a very rare gift in a disillusioned world -- an unswerving belief in magic.
  • "Showdown with Rance McGrew" Ep. 85, February 2, 1962: TV cowboy star Rance McGrew Larry Blyden finds himself in a real Old West saloon where Jesse James Arch Johnson challenges him to a showdown over television's negative depiction of outlaws.
  • "A Piano in the House" Ep. 87, February 16, 1962: Fitzgerald Fortune, a cynical critic Barry Morse, uses a magical player piano to disclose his party guests' hidden selves. He delights in the game, but when the tables are turned, a painful truth is revealed.
  • "Night Call" Ep. 139, February 7, 1964: Lonely, confined to a wheelchair, Elva Keene Gladys Cooper starts to get numerous mysterious phone calls. Terrified, she screams the words that will doom her.
