Storyline

Ventriloquist Jonathan West isn't having much luck finding a job. He's gone to several auditions but no one taken him on. He's falling behind in his rent and is now getting to the point where he's running out of things to pawn. He has to put up with the taunts of young Susan, the landlady's niece. He's also talking to his dummy, Caesar, who has advice for him on how to get ahead. It's not very good advice however. Written by garykmcd

Aaaggghhhh!!!! Another dummy- takes- over- the- ventriloquist
15 November 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

One dimensional stupid Irish ventriloquist turns to crime on the advice of his dummy. He acts as though the dummy is his intellectual and spiritual superior and as though an autonomous dummy is common enough. It is a silly idea done too often in fantasy stories. There is hardly any narrative to this and little merit whatsoever. Apparently, the writer had only two other screen writing credits. Even Julius Moomer from The Bard would have written something better. The barrel just cant get scraped much more than this.

Avoid this one and don't let it detract from so much great writing in the Twilight Zone.
