Storyline

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

Excellent entry from that magical first year. Kevin Mc Carthy's history professor appears to know a lot more about history than what's in the books. His photo even turns up in a Civil War album. Prospective father-in-law Edgar Stehli gets suspicious and confronts him. Is he really just 39 or just pretending. Theme allows writer Charles Beaumont to philosophize about life's ultimates-- life, death, love, eternity. Also, allows Serling to convey his agnostic leanings in the postscript. Mc Carthy makes a persuasive professor, although Stehli seems a little too bland. The script may be talkier than most; however the action picks up with the conclusion that is both well done and quite fitting. All in all, this is one of the episodes that won the series an enthusiastic following and has helped maintain its classic standing over the years.
