Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] Take away a man's dream, fill him with whiskey and despair, send him to a lonely bridge, let him stand there all by himself looking down as the black water, and try to imagine the thoughts that are in his mind. You can't, I can't. But there's someone who can - and that someone is seated next to Douglas Winter right now. The car is headed back toward town, but its real destination is the Twilight Zone.

True, it's an old scenario- accepting help from the devil to turn one's fortunes around at the risk of damnation. Still this is a lively and enjoyable hour-long TZ. Robert Sterling runs The Courier, a newspaper about to go out of business until Mr Smith, or the devil(Burgess Meredith-in his last of four TZ's) intervenes and provides all the scoops. Patricia Crowley blends well with Robert Sterling, playing his much less gullible secretary/girlfriend. There are morals to the story which become confirmed as the pace builds brilliantly towards the end. Charles Beaumont's scripting and Meredith's playing of the devil are amusing. He gets close to being charming then reminds you he's a right mischievous little thing.

Good fun.
