"A Game of Pool" Jonathan Winters playing it straight and nailing it!
"Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?" One of the best episodes ever chocked full of Jack Elam & other great character actors: Barney Phillips, John Archer & John Hoyt
and "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" Fear is greatest of what we think we know--
The rest of my favorites are as follows:
"The Old Man in the Cave" Very Early James Coburn & great character actor John Anderson
"Mr. Bevis" Orson, the OTHER Orson-- Orson Bean
"Cavender Is Coming" Early Carol Burnett & ace Character Jessee White!
"Mr. Denton on Doomsday" Dan Duryea, early Martin Landau & Doug McClure
"The Hunt" Anything with Arthur Hunnicutt is worth the look--
"The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank" AND that goes double for anything with Sherry Jackson in it!
"King Nine Will Not Return" Robert Cummings in his natural element--
"Mr. Dingle, the Strong" The wonderful Burgess Meredith with two super character actors Douglas Spencer & Michael Fox as Martian #1 & #2
"The Odyssey of Flight 33" John Anderson again and another reason I don't like to fly--
"A Thing About Machines" One of my favorite character actors Richard Haydn battling machines. I often have the same problem--
"On Thursday We Leave for Home" Great twist ending with James Whitmore & Tim O'Connor in costume and spaceship from the classic 1950s Sci-Fi film Forbidden Planet
"Printer's Devil" Burgess Meredith again!
"Once Upon a Time" The immortal Buster Keaton! If that is not enough, toss in wonderful character actors Stanley Adams & Jesse White
"Time Enough at Last" Burgess Meredith in his best "Twilight Zone" performance--
"The Bard" Burt Reynolds doing Brando, what more can you ask for? Okay how's about excellent character actors Jack Weston, John Williams & John McGiver--
and all time best is "To Serve Man" The ultimate killer twist ending with Lloyd Bochner & a Pre-007 Jaws Richard Kiel!
I loved The Howling Man.
What about the episode where a man is given a watch that stops time? While emptying a bank vault, he drops and breaks the watch. Does the list include that episode?
I’m putting you into the cornfield.
Love watching Twilight Zone again and again.
How about “The Grave” it should certainly be in the top 10
That was "A kind of a Stopwatch" and yeah, it makes the cut with character actor Richard Erdman as the--
Wait for it--
Untimely Patrick Thomas McNulty.
# 2 - The Obsolete Man
Loved the twist ending ones. I was just a kid and some of these really scared me. One that I remember had a girl in the hospital with her face bandaged up. At the end they took the bandages off and everyone gasped with fear. She was beautiful but all the others were grotesque.
For those without SyFy Channel, I’m able to watch TZ on this link and I don’t subscribe to anything...
Good picture quality too!
One of my favorites is Nothing in the Dark...only because it starred a really handsome young Robert Redford as Mr. Death.
Now I look at Redford and go “EWWWWWWWWWW.”
All good, I like Mr. Garrity and the Graves, too.
“Time Enough At Last” gets my vote.....
Nice work, Bender2!
I watched Hickcock’s 1954 mystery “Rear Window” today. Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly and Raymond Burr.
Truly, a great movie...
