Friday, November 11th is the exact 62nd Anniversary of the original broadcast of what many consider the greatest episode of the legendary television series The Twilight Zone, “Eye of the Beholder,” written by series creator and head writer, Rod Serling (1924-75).
The script is a hallmark of Serling’s style: strong on theme, poetic dialogue, morality, and suspense, as he takes the age-old adage about beauty and gives it a thorough Twilight Zone treatment, capped by a truly unforgettable ending that burns into your brain forever. The deft direction by series luminary Douglas Heyes, stunning lighting and camerawork by TZ D.P. George T. Clemens, and the makeup masterworks of William Tuttle, are artistically audacious and utterly memorable.
So come join Twilight Zone aficionado Arlen Schumer (author/designer, Visions from The Twilight Zone) as he discusses and disseminates this timeless classic, via still images from the episode, from the series, and from the broader pop culture, itself influenced by the tremendous, lasting impact of this single, and singular Twilight Zone episode–which will, of course, be screened in its unedited-for-commercials entirety!
