Trivia

Within a week after the telecast, Rod Serling and his staff reportedly received four thousand pieces of vitriolic hate mail. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, Peter Vollmer is hit with a tomato or other vegetable in the face which splatters along the left side of his head, hair, neck and left shoulder part of his shirt. He has no residue at all on any of those areas after he briefly fights with the heckler immediately after getting hit by the vegetable. Shortly later, when he returns home after the brief fight, the opposite side of his shirt (the right side which did not get splattered) has several spots evenly spread over that side...more spots than he could have gotten by falling in the street during his brief fight.

almost great
11 April 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, United States) – See all my reviews

The most chilling thing to me in watching this episode is that now, more than 40 years after this episode first aired, all of the things that Peter Vollmer says in his speeches are heard on talk radio and several TV commentators now in the USA. Even the phrasing is the same. I would love to know the source of the item in the trivia section, that claims this episode generated more hate mail than any other episode -- what did people hate about it? This episode is almost great; I'm sure the identity of the man in the shadows was a big surprise to audiences of the time, but for those of us who have been raised on Serling-type surprises, you know what's coming. Why the episode is not great is the ending; it just kind of washes out. Still, Hopper's performance is frightening and believable, and this episode is must-see.
