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

Trivia

The interior living room & front door entrance set from the first half of this episode is actually the living room of Rod Taylor in The Time Machine (1960). The original wood panelling 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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

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.

Eerily prophetic?
27 September 2010 | by (The Mists of Time) – See all my reviews

Kevin McCarthy and Estelle Winwood became the oldest active actors in

the Screen Actors' Guild decades after appearing in "Long Live Walter Jameson" on THE TWILIGHT ZONE.

That was always uncanny, given the storyline.

But it's even eerier now that Kevin McCarthy has just died. And why? Well, one of the things in "Long Live Walter Jameson" that some people have noticed in recent years was the reference in his diary to the city being destroyed on "Tuesday, September 11th", 42 years before the 9/11 attacks.

So now McCarthy's death date of Septemeber 11th seems equally odd.
