Walter Jamieson is a successful history professor. He's been teaching for 12 years and has proven to be very popular with his students for his ability to bring his subject to life. He is engaged to Susanna Kittridge, his good friend Professor Sam Kittridge's daughter. One thing that Professor Kittridge has noticed about Walter is that he doesn't seem to have aged one bit in the 12 years they have known each other. Walter admits that he is far older than anyone can imagine but before he and Susanna can elope, someone from his past pays him a visit. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


The interior living room & front door entrance set from the first act is the living room of "George" in The Time Machine (1960). The original wood paneling from that film has been painted white, but is otherwise obviously the same set, albeit without the Victoriana dressings. The same set also appears in other first season episodes of The Twilight Zone. 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 »


Narrator: [Closing Narration] Last stop on a long journey, as yet another human being returns to the vast nothingness that is the beginning and into the dust that is always the end.

Oscar Wilde Lives
1 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There have been many fictional accounts of men who cannot die, who are able to transcend centuries. Dorian Gray is the most obvious one. In this portrayal, Kevin McCarthy is about to be married to a pretty young woman. It is found out during the episode that his face has been seen in a Civil War picture. We come to know that this man has been around for centuries. He has had wife after wife, grown tired of them when they aged, and then moved on. Unfortunately for him, one of those wives is still alive and fingers him, ruining his plans. This is a tightly done rework of the Oscar Wilde story without a painting. As is the archetypal result, this cannot go on forever.
