When Marilyn shows her mother Lana a picture of herself (Lana) before her own "Transformation," the picture is of Collin Wilcox with a different hairstyle. Wilcox was herself thirty-five years old when she made this episode, but the premise made it possible for her to be credible as a nineteen-year-old. See more »
Great morality play on the value of individuality and the dangers of conformity
I think this is an underrated episode. It rails against the cookie-cutter suburban uniformity that was running rampant in the late 50's and early 60's by taking it to its logical extreme at a time in the distant future. It also speaks to now, with shows like What Not To Wear on TLC being popular. I'm not saying that What Not To Wear is bad or evil, but it walks a very fine line between being a makeover show that helps people be more confident about themselves and being like this episode of the Twilight Zone. It wouldn't take much to make a show like What Not To Wear cross the line, and episodes like this one make us aware of that fine line and alert us to the dangers of crossing it.
