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

[closing narration]
Narrator: Everybody knows Pamela Morris, the beautiful and eternally young movie star. Or does she have another name, even more famous, an Egyptian name from centuries past? It's best not to be too curious, lest you wind up like Jordan Herrick, a pile of dust and old clothing, discarded in the endless eternity of the Twilight Zone.

Age 38 ? -even Jack Benny used to say 39.
2 February 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Ghost written by Jerry Sohl for Charles Beaumont, who by this time was suffering from Alzheimers disease. This entry generally lives in the shadow of Beaumont's season one tale of longevity, 'Long Live Walter Jameson'. I think this one stands by itself as a middle ranking Zone. Pamela Morris (Ann Blyth) is a flirty , soft-spoken, beautiful star of old movies who somehow never seems to age. She has a very strange filial relationship with Viola (Celia Lovsky) and you'll have to see it to find out just how strange. Pamela gives an interview to a cynical journalist (Lee Philips) who wants to unravel her alluring and sinister mystery. Rod Serling says he's 'just looked into the face of The Twilight Zone', and it can seldom have looked better than Ann Blyth, best known as the spoiled Veda in 'Mildred Pierce'. Pamela Morris is deceptively feminine and petite, and the star performance carries this light 'Sunset Boulevard'-like entry well.

Kevin McCarthy lived to 96 after starring in 'Long Live Walter Jameson'. Ann Blyth is one of the very few stars remaining from the 1940's. Let's wish her much more longevity!
