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 Whole Truth" (Ep. 50, January 20, 1961): A special Model A automobile compels used car dealer Harvey Hunnicut (Jack Carson) to tell only the truth. Consequently, he can't sell a single vehicle on his lot -- until he comes up with an unusual marketing idea.
  • "Mute" (Ep. 107, January 31, 1963, 50 min.): A 12-year-old girl (Ann Jillian) who loses her parents in a fire doesn't speak because she has grown up in a telepathic community. The couple (Frank Overton, Barbara Baxley) who takes her in and her teacher (Irene Dailey) are determined to help her adapt to their society, no matter the cost.
  • "Queen of the Nile" (Ep. 143, March 6, 1964): A young, handsome columnist (Lee Philips) is startled to learn that famous movie star Pamela Morris (Ann Blyth) is just as lovely and young-looking as when she starred in the 1940 film Queen of the Nile. Intrigued, he investigates -- and soon learns a terrifying secret.
