In my audio-book, Rock Star Rising there are three actors who starred in their own episodes of the 1960's fantasy TV series The Twilight Zone. Here's their names. Can you guess their episodes?
Rod Taylor, Kevin McCarthy, and H.M. Wynant.
Well, H.M. Wynant never became a star like the first two, although he did a hundred TV shows and worked in movies with Clark Gable and Elvis Presley, so don't feel bad if you don't know him or his Zone episode. He was the guy, that went to an old castle in Europe seeking refuge from a storm. The head of the religious order (John Carradine) lets him rest there.
Inside he sees a man in a cell who want to escape. Carradine tells H. M. that it is the devil that is locked up. Remember that one? I won't give away the ending, but if you saw it, you can't forget it. It was titled The Howling Man.
Rod Taylor starred in And When the Sky was Opened, about three astronauts that return to earth and then one of them disappears.
I'm sure you'll remember Kevin McCarthy's (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) episode, Long Live Walter Jameson. He's a history teacher that is 2,000 years old and about to marry again.
For my audio-book, I choose the actors for their name, talent, voice, or their place in film history. I didn't realize until later that they had appeared in a Twilight Zone episode.
Linked to them via science fiction and fantasy TV series is Robert Culp who appeared in three Outer Limits episodes. One of them The Demon with the Glass Hand, is the number one most viewed hour program in the history of TV.
When I mentioned it to Mr. Culp before starting his recording (with Kevin McCarthy and James Darren), on Rock Star Rising, he said, "That's right. Demon with the Glass Hand showed the most in re-runs, and lots of fans tune in every time it's on. It's also the most profitable hour in the history of TV." Now there is a great trivia question to ask your friends.
