Trivia, Quotes, Notes and Allusions
Rod Serling: We’re most pleased you’ve seen fit to visit us here. As usual we’re doing business at the old stand, or on the same wires, if you will. Because our stock in trade is paintings, all sorts of paintings. Charming little still lifes and, on a few occasions, a few still deaths. Now check this one if you will. Strips of ethereal night clouds as seen from a vantage point of a square acreage of tombstones, and face of neutral onlooker who surveys the silence. Well, perhaps not quite total silence because the name of our painting is Whisper, and it tells the story of one body inhabited by two people. And at a point, as you can well imagine, this gets crowded. And if this one doesn’t ice up the old spine, we’ll send you one of our official apologies, along with the body. That’s the kind of guarantee you’ll get in the Night Gallery.
This episode was based on the short story "Whisper" by Martin Waddell.
