Trivia

Because of a lawsuit, this episode was not included in the syndication package for The Twilight Zone. It was finally re-aired in 1984 as "The Miniature" (see Alternate Versions). See more »

Goofs

When Charley smashes the showcase glass in the museum to save the girl from being attacked, the dollhouse shown behind is revealed to be empty. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] They never found Charley Parkes, because the guard didn't tell them what he saw in the glass case. He knew what they'd say, and he knew they'd be right, too, because seeing is not always believing - especially if what you see happens to be an odd corner - of The Twilight Zone.

Robert Duvall
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this episode in 1963 on our tiny black and white TV, when I had no idea who Robert Duvall was. In fact, it was only last week when I saw it again that I realised who the star was.

I've always loved the Twilight Zone, but this episode stood out more than any other. I remembered almost every line, every movement - even the turn of the head of the museum guard. And couldn't wait for the credits to read the names.

What a pleasure to recognise the name of one of our most prolific actors - and to realise what a profound impression he (and Rod Serling of course) had made on me some 46 years ago.

Thank goodness for video, cable and all the rest so these performances are not lost and can be savoured for years to come.
