Until episodes became available on VHS and DVD, this was one of four "lost" episodes of Twilight Zone (1959) that were not included with syndication packages during the 1960s through the 1980s. The other three were Twilight Zone: Miniature (1963), Twilight Zone: Sounds and Silences (1964), and Twilight Zone: The Encounter (1964). This episode, "Miniature," and "Sounds and Silences" were excluded from the package because of lawsuits that had been filed claiming those episodes were plagiarized. "The Encounter" had drawn complaints of anti-Japanese prejudice and epithets expressed by one of the characters. The episodes were finally re-released for broadcast television in a 1983 special hosted by Patrick O'Neal, the lead actor of "Fountain". See more »

Dr. Raymond Gordon:
I wonder if she has any idea what she's done, even one slight, little suspicion. But I promise you, that if you don't survive or if you're damaged in any way, I'm gonna take it out of her skin, piece by piece. She's gonna donate a pint of blood for every pint that she's bled out of you. That's not a medical hypthesis, that's a promise.

The rich old goat gets the young girl. He is sick and having trouble keeping up. That Ruta Lee was really something back in the day. She certainly is a handful in this episode She's about as nasty and shrewish as a vixen can be. Her perpetual reference to her husband as Big Daddy is really dated. He certainly is that, although sugar daddy may have been more appropriate. She is in it for the money and she makes no bones about it. She abuses him and his property. She has not a lick of sentimentality. Along comes the brother who has been researching a serum which makes tissue regenerate and make things younger. The husband wants some and after threatening suicide, he gets it with dire consequences. Quid pro quo. One problem is the issue of the power of the brother/doctor. How does he get such power and have the right to use it?
