Trivia

For a production of "Frankenstein" Lon Chaney Jr. played the creature. Due to his heavy drinking, he thought that the actual performance was just another rehearsal. Instead of actually smashing the props on the set, he simply went through the motions as he did for the rehearsals. See more »

Terrific avant-garde science-fiction!
1 December 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this series in first run! Fortunately, the episodes are still available on videotape. (I salute those who preserved the films.) This was in many ways more experimental than "Twilight Zone" and similar programs. And here's an example: I recall the episode where the program opened with a typical and excellent Tales Of Tomorrow science-fiction storyline. Just as the audience got into the live action, the entire play and its cast and even its crew were disrupted by an actual on-stage emergency! (This, of course, was a play-within-a-play, but the "reality" of it was stunning!) Seek out taped episodes, and learn what television once, long ago, could do, and how creative it could be, and what it wasn't afraid to try.
