The original story is credited to Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore (it was published under their joint pseudonym, "Lewis Padgett"), but, like many of the songs credited to "Lennon and McCartney", it may have been written in collaboration or by either of them alone. Often even they could not say later who had written how much of many of their stories. See more »
Hans Conreid is one of my favorite character actors of all time, and here he is put to the test as a man whose wife has bought him a television to entertain him while she is away So many people don't get the point of this movie, and it really is quite simple considering the history of the time. This is in the infancy of television and the motion picture industry was suffering at the time because people found it was cheaper to stay at home for their entertainment. So what does the industry do? They hire Arch Oboler of radio fame to write a screenplay about an almost despotic TV set. It's pretty basic, and makes for a surreal and entertaining time. Think of "The Twilight Zone" with a sense of humor and you get "The Twonky Zone" basically. Just sit back and enjoy, and if smoke 'em if you got 'em. The Twonky will light it for you.
