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:
  • "Jess-Belle" (Ep. 109, February 14, 1963, 50 min.): Billy-Ben Turner (James Best) finds himself enchanted by the beautiful Jess-Belle (Anne Francis), who soon learns the danger of buying a love spell from a witch.
  • "Sounds and Silences" (Ep. 147, April 3, 1964): This rarely seen episode features Roswell Flemington (John McGiver), a boisterous man who loves noise. But when his wife leaves him, the volume in his life goes haywire.
  • "Caesar and Me" (Ep. 148, April 10, 1964): Broke and jobless, ventriloquist Jonathan West (Jackie Cooper) is no match for his evil dummy, Little Caesar, who grabs the chance to set him up for a fall.
