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
Those of you who remember the 1960's Batman will notice that both Penguin (Burgess Meredith in Printer's Devil) and Catwoman (Julie Newmar) play the devil in series 4 of TZ. Cliffordville is yet another tale of a man wanting to go back to his youth (a theme Serling was deeply interested in).This story would have been better in the half hour format. It only really comes to life while Ms Newmar is on screen as the slick, glamorous and horned Miss Devlin. Her star turn is all that distinguishes this episode. The villainy and greed of Feathersmith will place you firmly on the alluring Miss Devlin's side. I'll let you guess which one of these wheeler-dealers has the last laugh?
