1. Sam Juliano

    Superlative consideration of yet another great film from this rich period in the cinema. Some actually consider that Playhouse version as the greater incarnation, but I think I agree with you Tony, Serling himself, who created the television masterpiece THE TWILIGHT ZONE himself considers this the greatest work he has ever done, and it’s stood the test of time quite admirably. Yes the acting is great but as you astutely note, it’s the masterful screenplay (a model of its kind) that this piece lays its claim to greatness.

    Fabulous review. You really knocked this one out of the park.
