Storyline

Lawman Conny Miller rides into a small dusty town not long after the townsfolk have gunned down the man he's been tracking for four months. He feels like he's wasted that four months and someone bets him $20 he hasn't the nerve to visit the dead man's grave. He takes that bet and has little difficulty going to the grave. Leaving it however proves to be another matter however. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Normally, the old man would be correct: this would be the end of the story. We've had the traditional shoot-out on the street and the badman will soon be dead. But some men of legend and folk tale have been known to continue having their way even after death. The outlaw and killer Pinto Sykes was such a person, and shortly we'll see how he introduces the town, and a man named Conny Miller in particular, to the Twilight Zone.

Moby Dick???--What Nonsense!!!!
1 January 2007 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

To relate this episode of "The Twilight Zone" to Melville's classic tale of obsession and compulsion is absurd! Stop making so much of Pittman's story. It is neither than good nor as complex. Melville's characters are far more developed, the story line far more complicated, the narrator (Ishmael) more subtle, and Ahab much larger than life, than any of the characters in "The Grave." While it is nice to catch real references in television fiction to great literature, "The Twilight Zone" is rarely the place to get it. Not that Serling and other writers in the series were not fine writers--of course they were. But borrowing from Melville??? Making the Pequod a "prarie schooner"? Get real!
