Walter Jamieson is a successful history professor. He's been teaching for 12 years and has proven to be very popular with his students for his ability to bring his subject to life. He is engaged to Susanna Kittridge, his good friend Professor Sam Kittridge's daughter. One thing that Professor Kittridge has noticed about Walter is that he doesn't seem to have aged one bit in the 12 years they have known each other. Walter admits that he is far older than anyone can imagine but before he and Susanna can elope, someone from his past pays him a visit.Written by
The September fire written of by "Maj.

Faint reminders of a more modern ageless love story
This story has a few tear-jerking elements in common with another more modern love story: that of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.
Edward and Bella battle with the age issue as well - she's aging and he is not. While the supporting characters in the two stories are quite different from each other, each tale has a philosophical tug of war underlying the plot.
You can tell this is an early episode of The Twilight Zone, as the story is not as tightly woven, and the dialogue is a bit under par. But its commentary on aging and death is quite provocative.
Good early role for Kevin McCarthy. And Estelle Winwood maintains a spooky aura. But the others are not yet ready for primetime.
