Storyline

Rosswell G. Flemington owns a model ship company and loves everything nautical. That's not his problem however: he likes everything to be loud. He speaks at the top of his lungs, bellowing commands to his staff. He plays his phonograph records - his favorites include the sound of jets flying off the deck of the USS Hornet - as loud as possible, something that leads his wife to leave him. He's not prepared for what happens to him in the Twilight Zone however. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: When last heard from, Mr. Roswell G. Flemington was in a sanitarium pleading with the medical staff to make some noise. They, of course, believe the case to be a rather tragic aberration - a man's mind becoming unhinged. And for this, they'll give him pills, therapy, and rest. Little do they realize that all Mr. Flemington is suffering from is a case of poetic justice. Tonight's tale of sounds and silences from... the Twilight Zone.

Louder and Louder and Then--
15 February 2010 | by (Asheville, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

The premise of this episode--obnoxious person gets a special, custom-built comeuppance--had been done time and again on The Twilight Zone, so as the series began to wind down I can imagine Mr. Serling thinking, "Well, it worked before, let's try it again." John McGiver is fun in a one-note way, as were his wife, the psychiatrist and the guy with the squeaky shoes. The dialog has some nice flourishes, set decoration is first-rate, and the episode was handsomely shot and moves briskly, but it's for completists only. My overall impression is a feeling that Mr. Serling was awakened one night by a neighbor's loud party and thought, "I'll get even with those jerks--in the Twilight Zone."
