Storyline

Eileen and Alan Ransome's marriage is going through a bad patch and they decide to go on a holiday to London. They insist on traveling by ship and book passage on the Lady Anne, an old ship that is not recommended by the travel agent but is leaving quite soon. When they arrive at the port terminal another passenger, McKenzie, says they've made a mistake and they shouldn't board. Another, Burgess, tries to warn them off as well and he and McKenzie offer them $10,000 to leave immediately. They find that all of the passengers are quite elderly but have a good deal of wisdom to dispense. They are more than a little taken aback when the captain puts them off the ship. They are rescued, but as for the Lady Anne...... Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] The Lady Anne never reached port. After they were picked up by a cutter a few hours later, as Captain Proheroe had promised, the Ransomes searched the newspapers for news - but there wasn't any news. The Lady Anne with all her crew and all her passengers vanished without a trace. But the Ransomes knew what had happened, they knew the ship had sailed off to a better port - in a place called the Twilight Zone.

A Sentimental Journey
17 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one kind of grows on one. A couple, married for six years, books a cruise to England on a ship. During the entire process, they are warned time and time again not to do this. The couple is interesting. Their marriage is in big trouble. He is a workaholic who thinks only of his next deal; she is the long suffering wife who has put up with this since they said "I do." She feels if they could just get away and be together, something might be salvaged. He is a cad, cynically commenting on everything, determined to hate everything on the trip, dismissing his wife's romantic hopes. The "Lady Anne" is on its last voyage. It is populated with elderly people, people who have a history of romance on this ship, going back decades. Some of the film world's greatest elderly character actors are on board. After doing everything they can to get the young couple to leave, they give up and invite them to be part of everything. There are some sombre comments made and they play on the mind of the young man. At one point the couple agrees that when this trip is concluded, they will go their separate ways. This whole episode is nicely played with really good performances. It has a charm and a gentleness to it is subtle in its flavor. Not the typical Twilight Zone, more like a movie from the 1940's.
