Did You Know?


The survivor gives a detailed account of the sinking of the Titanic in which he describes the ship sinking by the bow. Although this account matches what was believed to be how the Titanic sank when first telecast in 1971, it is now known that the Titanic split in half and sank in two separate pieces. See more »

Survivor is the victim
14 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This fine segment of the Night Gallery gives us a terrific performance by John Colicos, whom I never heard of, as a survivor of the Titanic, which just happened to have sunk 3 years prior. He's rescued by the Lusitania, who's crew is stunned that he's survived those years on a floating raft, even though the captain think's he making up the story and is a spy; soon after, there's some rather interesting dialog between the survivor and the ship's doctor, who knows the man's story can't be correct, or can it? The man explains that he dressed in woman's clothing to escape the doomed ship, and since he acted selfishly, he's now cursed to be rescued by doomed ships, including the Lusitania, which he informs the doctor will hit by a torpedo shortly. The doctor tells this tale to the suspicious captain, and also tells him that the man believes that the crew is nothing but phantoms. The next moment may be the best of this episode and it is when the captain turns around to answer the doctor, no one is there as the captain is all alone; he tries ringing the phone for the crew, but the place is empty. The next scene has the survivor all by himself looking out into the sea screaming that a torpedo is about to strike the cursed ship that he's currently aboard, but then it's too late as the ship explodes, and in Night Gallery fashion, the screen simply turns red. The final moments has another crew seeing a floating raft in the ocean, and even though the raft reads Lusitania, once again the crew is confused, as the very last shot has a crew member looking into the camera with a hat that has Andrea Doria written on the front, which was another doomed ship. As I said earlier, the performance of Colicos as the survivor is the best aspect of this episode and I would recommend to any fan of Night Gallery, and it's easily one of the best parts of that particular season, which doesn't have that many strong episodes.
