Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Missing: one frightened little girl. Name: Bettina Miller. Description: six years of age, average height and build, light brown hair, quite pretty. Last seen being tucked in bed by her mother a few hours ago. Last heard - "Ay, there's the rub", as Hamlet put it. For Bettina Miller can be heard quite clearly, despite the rather curious fact that she can't be seen, at all. Present location? Let's say for the moment - in The Twilight Zone.

creepy, thought provoking, and wonderful
11 July 2009 | by QanqorSee all my reviews

A great episode, one that definitely stays with you. One of the things which really makes it work is the excellent, creepy music (Bernard Herrman, I believe, so no surprise there).

The one thing which really mars the episode, for me, at least, was the awful obviously-dubbed voice of the child. It sounds so overtly like exactly what it is: a 32 year old adult trying to sound like a child. And it reaches an utter nadir at the end, when we get to hear a bit of the child's actual voice, immediately followed by more overdub. The two so obviously don't match. Beats me why that was done so cheesily. Surely they could've found a child actress who could actually do the lines herself; usually the Zone was much better about casting. I can only assume that they originally shot it with the child doing the lines, then decided that it was not usable, and had someone dub it at the last minute.
