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:
- "The Gift" Episode 97, April 27, 1962: An alien who crash-lands into a remote mountain village stirs up the inhabitants fears and animosity, but he befriends a little boy and gives him a mysterious present.
- "Young Man's Fancy" Episode 99, May 11, 1964: When a newlywed couple briefly return to the groom's childhood home, the ties of the past prove too strong to resist.
- "The Incredible World of Horace Ford" Episode 117, April 18, 1963, 50 min.: Toy designer Horace Ford Pat Hingle spends most of his time reminiscing about his idyllic childhood. But when he gets the chance to go back to those years, he gets a bitter taste of reality.
