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 that the ship had sailed off to a better port - a place called The Twilight Zone.

Lovely acting...
28 June 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A younger couple is interested in booking passage on a cruise ship. However, it's not the normal cruise season and the pickings are slim, so the only cruise seems to be on an old ship. But, when they are about to board, a couple older passengers approach them--telling them that they'll hate the cruise! They even offer to buy their tickets off of them at a HUGE profit! Frankly, I would have taken it, but the couple is stubborn. Once on board, they are shocked to see that all the passengers and crew are elderly! The folks are friendly enough and make them seem welcome--but it's obvious that something is going on...but what?!

While the finale of this show was awfully expected, it's still a decent show for several reasons. First, while it's not exactly 'Twilight Zoney" in style, the show has a nice romantic style. It's a nice change of pace. Second, with some wonderful elderly actors, it can't help but be good. With Alan Napier, Wilfrid Hyde-White, Cecil Kellaway and Gladys Cooper, you have a nucleus of magnificent talent--and they are all charming and terrific performers.

So is this a must-see? Certainly not. But, it is worth seeing and is a worthy hour-long show.
