Trivia

As a teenager, Liza Minnelli auditioned for the role of Mary Rachel opposite Gary Crosby. Minnelli was so nervous that the producer William Froug commented: "She'll never make it." Minnelli lost out to Bonnie Beecher. This episode was Ms. Beecher's acting debut. See more »

Goofs

When Floyd takes off from the shack with all the instruments in it because he hears Mary Rachel's tune, the straps for the guitar and the tape recorder continuously switch positions as he runs through the woods. Sometimes the guitar strap is over the recorder strap, and other times the recorder strap is on top. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Mr. Floyd Burney, a gentleman songster in search of song, is about to answer the age-old question of whether a man can be in two places at the same time. As far as his folk song is concerned, we can assure Mr. Burney he'll find everything he's looking for, although the lyrics may not be all to his liking. But that's sometimes the case - when the words and music are recorded in the Twilight Zone.

Swan Song
8 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Gary Crosby stars as Floyd Burney, the "Rock-A-Billy Kid", a traveling singer-songwriter who also likes to buy unknown songs for his profit. This takes him to some rural backwoods, where he hears a haunting ballad sung by Mary Rachel(played by Bonnie Beecher) who falls in love with him, but is powerless to change his preordained fate, as it seems Floyd is destined to live the song he wants to buy... Last produced episode of the series(though two more would air after it) is a misfire; though it does have a spooky aura about it, it also has little point or interest. Crosby's performance is sincere but coarse.

Still should have been aired last however...
