Did You Know?


Actor Kevin McCarthy occasionally cited his performance in this episode - playing a character who was immortal - as seemingly having come true in his own life, as he remained in good health and continued to act while outliving most of his family and colleagues as he approached the age of 100. McCarthy died September 11, 2010 at the age of 96, having earned an acting credit as late as the year he died, more than 50 years after this episode was produced. See more »


When Walter is reading the diary of the Civil War soldier at the beginning of the program, he reads an entry from "Tuesday, September 11, 1864." September 11, 1864 was a Sunday. See more »


Professor Sam Kittridge: I thought if a man lived forever, he'd grow wiser. But that isn't true, is it?
Prof. Walter Jameson: You just go on living, that's all.

Faint reminders of a more modern ageless love story
25 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story has a few tear-jerking elements in common with another more modern love story: that of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

Edward and Bella battle with the age issue as well - she's aging and he is not. While the supporting characters in the two stories are quite different from each other, each tale has a philosophical tug of war underlying the plot.

You can tell this is an early episode of The Twilight Zone, as the story is not as tightly woven, and the dialogue is a bit under par. But its commentary on aging and death is quite provocative.

Good early role for Kevin McCarthy. And Estelle Winwood maintains a spooky aura. But the others are not yet ready for primetime.
