Rod Serling, who had gained fame from an earlier series, The Twilight Zone, served both as the on-air host of Night Gallery and as a major contributor of scripts, although he did not have the same control of content and tone as he had on The Twilight Zone. The series was introduced with a pilot TV movie that aired on November 8, 1969, and featured the directorial debut of Steven Spielberg, as well as one of the last acting performances by Joan Crawford. Allegedly, Bette Davis was set to star in the segment, but she felt her work was not important to a young director. However there is nothing in the files at Universal to suggest anyone other than Crawford was slated for the role.Best Bit – Rod Serling turning to the camera and saying, “Good-Evening”, with a smile. You can see his sense of humour right there. brilliant writer. great sense of humour. There’s to be a new film made about his life coming out next year. Hope they do a good job of it. He deserves it.
Burgess Meredith was one of those actors who made you forget you were watching an actor. You believe he is the person he was portraying. Check out any 3 of his film roles or TV appearances if you don’t already know what I mean. Try an episode of the 1960’s Batman TV series in which he played the Penguin, the 1939 version of “Of Mice & Men” & any of the Stallone “Rocky” films. Have a good time.
