In 1959 screenwriter Rod Serling first opened the door to the "dimension of imagination" that is The Twilight Zone, a show quite unlike anything that had gone before, and better than much that has followed in its wake. This original and daring television series ran for a magnificent five seasons from 1959 to 1964 and still looks as fresh as ever, particularly on DVD. What distinguished the series (and still does) is the quality of the scripts, many of which were penned by Serling, but with significant contributions from veteran sci-fi authors and screenwriters such as Richard Matheson. Actors of the calibre of Robert Redford, Burgess Meredith, Lee Marvin and William Shatner gave some of their best small-screen performances, while an unforgettable main title theme by Bernard Herrmann and musical contributions from young turks such as Jerry Goldsmith underlined the show's attraction for great creative talent both behind and in front of the cameras.
On the DVD: A neat animated menu with a winking eye guides the viewer "Inside the Twilight Zone", which consists of digests of background information on the individual episodes, as well as a general history of the show, a season-by-season breakdown and a potted biography of Serling. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

In Serling's "The 7th Is Made Up of Phantoms," a trio of men in a National Guard tank on maneuvers near the Little Big Horn keep coming across signs that "Custer's Last Stand" is about to take place. Connors (Ron Foster) and McCluskey (Randy Boone) become convinced they are chasing the past, but Langsford (Warren Oates) believes they are crazy. Then McCluskey is shot in the back with an arrow. This episode harkens back to those days when Custer was still admired.Read more ›
