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:
  • "Execution" (Ep. 26, April 1, 1960): In 1880, Joe Caswell (Albert Salmi) is about to be hanged for shooting a man in the back, but his life is spared when a time machine throws him into the future. If only he could escape fate as easily....
  • "The Hunt" (Ep. 84, January 26, 1962): An old hillbilly (Arthur Hunnicut) and his hound dog find themselves walking on an unfamiliar path and meet a gatekeeper, who tells them they're at the entrance to heaven. One problem: dogs are not allowed.
  • "The Self-Improvement of Salvadore Ross" (Ep. 136, January 3, 1964): Salvadore Ross (Don Gordon) will stop at nothing to win Leah Maitland's love. Even he trades his youth for money to court her in style. But when he buys compassion, he gets more than he bargained for.
  • "Number Twelve Looks Just Like You" (Ep. 137, January 24, 1964): At the age of 19 everyone must undergo an operation that makes them beautiful...and identical to everyone else. But Marilyn Cuberle desperately hangs onto her own identity. Superstar model Suzy Parker is featured.
