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

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Jonathan West, ventriloquist, a master of voice manipulation. A man late of Ireland, with a talent for putting words into other's people's mouths. In this case, the other person is a dummy, aptly named Caesar, a small splinter with large ideas, a wooden tyrant with a mind and a voice of his own, who is about to talk Jonathan West into the Twilight Zone.

The Darkest Corner
8 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jackie Cooper stars as a talented ventriloquist with a horrible act, and even worse luck. He is also quite gullible and stupid, which his evil dummy Caesar will exploit for full advantage to pull off some robberies, though a rotten little girl(played by a young Morgan Brittany) has her own agenda... Appalling episode is without doubt the low point of the series. It isn't the actors or direction, but the atrocious script, which is entirely unoriginal('The Dummy' was a masterpiece), pointless, dramatically stale and repugnantly nihilistic, with a lead character too dumb to care about, and the evil doll enlisting that spoiled brat to continue more mayhem. Quite contrary to the normally just endings the series specialized at, this seemed to ooze out of the darkest corner of the Twilight Zone...
