Star Power
2 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes concerns Maggie McNamara as movie queen Bunny Blake. One day McNamara shows up in the small town of Howardville where she hails from. She drops in on her sister Mary Munday and her nephew David Macklin and as it turns out it is Founder's Day in the place and the annual picnic is scheduled.

As the biggest name that ever sprang from Howardville McNamara figures she's got a lot of privilege coming to her. So she decides that she will give a command performance at the local high school and with her star power that will easily attract more than a dull old picnic that they hold every year.

Munday thinks she's rude and egotistical and possibly she is. But as it turns out this scheduled appearance is the greatest gift she can give the place where she sprang from.

This is a wonderful fantasy episode and as it turns out her seeming egoism masks a truly great gift.
