Fine Sci-Fi for 1949!
16 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I recall Burgess Meredith in an episode involving some sort of "Time Machine" episode of "Lights Out", a la a Twilight Zone script, but mostly I remember the opening of the show... A deep voice saying, "Lights Out!" when a candle blew out. The unidentified voice was a deep male one, and one I'll never forget. I was scared to death by this as a kid, and still thought it was extremely dramatic as an adult in re-runs on a now defunct cable network, maybe one called the 'Nostalgia Channel'. I wish this program could be shown again because the talent involved in the early television shows can never be equaled today. "Lights Out" may have been performed live and filmed on kinescope, and it may have been as imperfect as a stage play, but the drama was there, and the cast was always adept with timing and creativity.
