Storyline

A syndicated columnist, Jordan Herrick, gets an interview with the famous and beautiful actress Pamela Morris. She claims to be 38 years old but according to Jordan's information, that would have made her first film as an adult when she was only 10. He takes her word for it but her elderly mother, Viola Draper, has news for him: she's not Pamela's mother, she is her daughter. The more he looks into her background, the more convinced he becomes that Pamela hasn't aged for decades. Faced with the facts, Pamela shows the lengths she will go to in order to protect her great secret. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Jordan Herrick, syndicated columnist, whose work appears in more than a hundred newspapers. By nature a cynic, a disbeliever, caught for the moment by a lovely vision. He knows the vision he's seen is no dream; she is Pamela Morris, renowned movie star, whose name is a household word and whose face is known to millions. What Mr. Herrick does not know is that he has also just looked into the face - of the Twilight Zone.

Rod Serling always felt that a writer could write tougher and stronger "message" pieces working in the science fiction/fantasy genre than he could ever write in a contemporary dramatic setting. He was right. And this episode proves it. Ann Blyth offers up an ageless movie queen who has played Cleopatra in both the silent and sound versions of the story. A handsome young reporter is sent to inquire how this is possible. Her explanation (she was very young in the first film) is plausible and puts him at ease. Bad move. He is quickly approached by a mysterious woman twice-his-age. He brushes her warnings off, too. Another bad move. It only gets worse for our good man from the fourth estate. Stay tuned for the twist ending and Mr. Serling's theory will crystallize before your eyes. Ann Blyth never played wicked any better. Every dusty old bone in her body is evil. But she looks great. The actress who played the old lady went on to uncover another evil plot in Soylent Green. Unfortunately, with the same negative results.
