Quotes

Roald Dahl: I have a maiden aunt in Norway who was actually rolled out of bed onto the floor three nights running, by a ghost. But then she lives in what was once a very old trysting place. About 400 years ago, they bricked up a naughty girl in the wall of that room: that sort of thing always produces a ghost. If your wife is extremely delicate, and you tickle her to death, that will produce a ghost, too - so you have to be careful. We have another one for you next week at the same time. Good night and ...

Please bring "Way Out" to DVD!
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We really need to have all 14 episodes of "Way Out" released on DVD for everyone to enjoy. One reason for it not being released is that apparently it's not known who owns the rights to this program at the present. There is definitely a market for this kind of program. Fans of classic programs like "Twilight Zone" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" would eat this stuff up as it's from the same era in television history. World famous writer Roald Dahl introduces each program and many recognizable faces are seen in the series. It's also worth noting that Dick Smith who did the makeup for this series, would later go on to do the makeup for the movie "The Exorcist" in 1973.
