Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
William Feathersmith is a hard-nosed - and hard-hearted - businessman who is now quite wealthy but bored. It's clear that what he enjoys is the chase and the acquisition of wealth. He also likes breaking men in the process. While leaving the office one day, he finds himself on the wrong floor and in the office of Devlin Travel, run by the devilishly attractive Ms. Devlin. In return for his amassed fortune, she offers to send him back in time to his hometown of Cliffordville in 1910 where he can start over and get the pleasure of building his empire all over again. He accepts and once back to the days of his youth begins wheeling and dealing. Nothing quite goes as planned however. Written by
Mr. Feathersmiths offices are on the 13th floor. This is unusual in the US most buildings before the 1980's skip the 13th floor when numbering floors in their buildings. The number 13 has long been considered unlucky. This does, however, fit right in, in "The Twilight Zone". See more »

This episode is unacceptable and impossible to watch due to slurping mouth noises made by Albert Salmi. Mouth noises are intolerable. At least that is my two cents.
This episode flows better than some of the other fourth-season episodes, many of which were obviously stretched out to an hour from 30-minute scripts.
Interestingly, Albert Salmi was only about 35 when this was filmed even though he plays a money-grubber in the twilight of his career. The makeup department did a creditable job, although it is obvious that it is a costume. (Why didn't they hire someone who was about the same age as the character? It seems like they went to a lot of trouble to make the episode less credible than it should have been.)
Albert Salmi died in a murder-suicide after killing his wife.
