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:
- "Nightmare as a Child" Ep. 29, April 29, 1960: A school teacher who has blocked out the details of her mother's murder encounters a strange little girl intent on making her recall the murderer's identity.
- "Person or Persons Unknown" Ep. 92, March 23, 1962: David Gurney Richard Long wakes up to find himself in a nightmare: no one--not even his wife nor his mother--knows him, and all evidence of his identity has disappeared.
- "Printer's Devil" Ep. 111, February 28, 1963, 50 min. - When a newspaper editor is at the brink of suicide as his paper is being driven out of business, the devious Mr. Smith Burgess Meredith presents an unusual deal guaranteed to boost circulation.
