The first episode happens to come from the first season, "And When the Sky Was Opened". Made in 1959 it would be a couple of years before man would actually go up into space. But this episode starring Rod Taylor, Charles Aidman and Jim Hutton as the three astronauts having just returned from their journey into outer space. Everything appears fine at first until things start to happen. First one of the astronauts just disappears. No explanations where he went he just disappears and no one remembers the astronaut that disappeared. It was like he never existed. The other two astronauts remember their missing comrade but everyone else thinks they are just suffering from fatigue. Then a second astronaut disappears again with no one remembering he ever existed leaving Rod Taylor the only one left who was on the space mission. Will the same fate await him? This is I think one of the all time best episodes from TZ.
Next up is "In His Image". Starring George Grizzard it is about a man who discovers he suddenly has an urge to kill. He also hears things in his head he can't explain. When he decides to take his fiancée, played by Gail Kobe, back to see his hometown he finds just about everything is not the way he remembers things. But he is about to find out what is going on and what the truth is. An interesting story though not one I would call a classic episode from the series. It is the one TZ episode I always feels seems more like an episode from "The Outer Limits" rather then "The Twilight Zone".
Volume 16 ends with a classic one man performance titled "The Last Night of a Jockey". It stars the legendary Mickey Rooney. He is the only person who appears in this story. Rooney plays a jockey who has been banned for life from racing for illegal activities. At the time it happened he was one of the very best jockeys around. All he wants to do is get reinstated. As he is in his room trying to decide how to get back into racing his image in the mirror starts to talk to him, taunting him because what had happened and what will he do to get back into racing. In hoping to get back into racing the disgraced jockey makes a wish to be big once again. And then the telephone rings with the word he will be reinstated as a jockey. But this IS the Twilight Zone and Rooney's character quickly finds out you better be careful what you wish for! Rooney is excellent in this episode. This is one of his very best acting performances in his long career.
This is a very good DVD from the series and one any fan of TZ will want to collect for their video library.
