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

'You just go on living.Thats all'.
30 December 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Kevin McCarthy is impressive as the ancient history professor, tired of thousands of years of life. Egdar Stehli matches him as his colleague and prospective father-in-law to the pipe-smoking Methusala. McCarthy plays Jameson as blasé about life, only really excited by lecturing on long ago history in which he was an active participant. Stehli plays Professor Kitteridge as a sensitive, rapidly aging man who fears death. That he refuses to let his thirty-year-old daughter marry Jameson seems like a patriarchal order from an earlier era.

One of so many interesting stories by Charles Beaumont in TZ. Intriguingly set up from the beginning with the stalking presence of Estelle Winwood.

The real life longevity of McCarthy and Winwood has been mentioned. Also Stehli lived to 89.
