[closing narration]
Narrator: In retrospect, it may be said of Mr. Floyd Burney that he achieved that final dream of the performer: eternal top-name billing, not in the fleeting billboards of the entertainment world, but forever recorded among the folk songs of the Twilight Zone.

His quest for new material
31 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Gary Crosby stars in this haunting Twilight Zone episode about a rockabilly folk singer looking for some new material. His quest takes him into the real piney woods of the Appalachins where he meets up with a strange young girl played by Bonnie Beecher.

Bonnie's got a song all right something like Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley and she sings the song which tells a story to Crosby. Gary likes it all right, but pretty soon he becomes part of the story and it's clear he'll not be getting back to American Bandstand any time soon.

Gary who did trash his father in that infamous memoir did in fact have a pretty good career as a character actor which continued even after Bing died. He's pretty good here in a role that showed him to best advantage. Beecher's a haunting young thing as well.

A nicely done story at almost the tail end of the Twilight Zone series run.
