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.

'Just shut up' 'Oh! yes-sir-yes-sir-yes-sir'
11 November 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is easily my favourite episode from the hour-long fourth series. The Twilight Zone at it's most charming. A nice change of pace from most of the others. An ideal one to watch to get into the series if you feel the Zone is just a tad too weird for you.

The Ransomes are a couple whose marriage is falling apart. Joyce Van Patten is engaging as the wife trying to rekindle the flame with her work obsessed husband. Wilfred Hyde-White and Gladys Cooper contrast stylishly with the Ransomes as old people still in love. Alan Napier (Alfred from 1960's Batman) appears as captain of HMS Lady Anne on which all the other passengers seem to be old.

An appealingly atmospheric setting for the most romantic entry of the anthology should lure you to sail into the zone. Don't be put off, however much Wilfred Hyde-White may offer you not to board.
