Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: We are all travelers. The trip starts in a place called birth, and ends in that lonely town called death. And that's the end of the journey, unless you happen to exist for a few hours, like Bunny Blake, in the misty regions of The Twilight Zone.

'Just What brought you back here, Barbara?'
27 November 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

In my opinion the best story of the eight that Earl Hamner Jr wrote for the Zone. Don't be put off by a slow building plot as the lasting charm of this one becomes clear late on. Hamner's scripts generally breathed some new life into the steadily declining series without quite reaching the heights of the greatest TZ productions. I like stories wherein there's an opportunity for characters to defy fate to some degree, whether the chance is used well or not.

Bunny Blake (Maggie McNamara) is the homecoming movie queen whose carefree manner reinforces opinion in Howardville that she's star-struck, capricious, and a little screwball. Yet there is some affection between Bunny and the town, whose people raised the money for her to go to Hollywood.

The ring is a nice, dreamy and mysterious plot device. The moment where Bunny walks into the rain is the most memorable. For me one of the golden moments of the series. A minor classic TZ, and one I cherish.
