One of Rod Serling's best scripts
14 June 1999 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

This was a watershed production for American Television. A live broadcast of an intense and moving script. If you love great film and can find a copy to rent, do so. Jack Palance gives the finest performance of his career and the supporting cast is flawless.

The movie version made several years later, and staring Anthony Quinn is quite good, but it doesn't measure up to the original.
