Performers, Cast and Crew:
An imaginative television series that probed the fuzzy intersection of fantasy and reality, offering highly original storylines that examined human and supernatural quandaries with insight and imagination, THE TWILIGHT ZONE aired from 1959 to 1964. But it in just five years' time it made an impact on popular culture that has been long-lasting and deep--even casual viewers can recall the classic twists of particular episodes. Scores of films and television programs were influenced by THE TWILIGHT ZONE, including THE SIXTH SENSE and THE X-FILES. This 4-disc collection offers a quartet of classic episodes from the popular and influential series. In "Living Doll," Telly Savalas stars as a father tormented by his daughter's malevolent talking doll. In "The Dummy," Cliff Robertson plays a ventriloquist whose dummy becomes all too frighteningly real. In "The Fever," a gambler obsesses over a casino slot machine. And in "The After Hours," a department store customer discovers her true identity.
