The only The Twilight Zone (1959) episode for the score-writer to be credited before the director (for the vitality of the episode's music). See more »
As the camera pans up on Rod Serling for the opening narration, he can be seen glancing to his left for a second to receive his cue to start talking. See more »
The other half - where? The fourth dimension? The fifth? Perhaps. They never found the answer. Despite a battery of research physicists equipped with every device known to man, electronic and otherwise, no result was ever achieved, except perhaps, a little more respect for, and uncertainty about, the mechanisms - of The Twilight Zone.

Back when I was a kid I used to imagine all kinds of goings on under the bed so this particular Twilight Zone episode has a personal meaning for me. But imaginings become real when a little girl crawls under her bed and can be seen but not heard.
That's what happens to the child of Robert Sampson and Sarah Marshall and aren't they lucky that they have a physicist as a neighbor. Charles Aidman comes over and he can hear the girl and the little dog that went in after her. And he finds an opening to another dimension.
The Twilight Zone always had that opening about traveling to another dimension, not only of sight and sound but of mind. This was the episode it actually happened and the journey was far from pleasant.
But it's a good half hour of television.
