Rod Serling's NIGHT GALLERY

Posted by Bill_the_Only on Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Who remembers this tv series from the early 70's? An anthology series, the quality of the stories were hit and miss, but man.....what a treat to have a show like this, it was an NBC primetime series, and I remember how this legitimized it for the kids to watch, as far as the adults were concerned. (But burn in hell if I was allowed to watch King Kong, but that's a story for another time)

Here is one of the longer episodes, called THE CATERPILLAR. It's a classic, and I remember that it left everyone with a great disturbed feel by its end...especially with its end. The story is a period piece set in a Borneo plantation, with Laurence Harvey, Joanna Petit (beautiful British actress), William Windom..... Harvey is despicable beyond belief, jealous of the old plantation owner's young wife, and plots his demise with of all things, an earwig.

It's in 4 parts at youtube, totalling about 30 minutes. It's a slow buildup, full of character development (remember THAT?), and the payoff is grand and evil.

Enjoy, damn you!

I have the first season on DVD. When I first started watching it, something about it didn't feel quite right (this is before they were doing goofy little horror comedy shorts in the later seasons; that didn't feel right at all). It was sort of like Twilight Zone, and sort of not. The sort of not was bugging me. So I ruminated. And I ruminated. I finally decided it was the color, so I turned my television set's saturation level down to zero. And you know what? It felt right.

I made a blooper by putting William Windom in that episode when he was in a different story from the same night. 8^p
