    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The five-person singing group serving as a chorus to the action in this episode (known as "The Third Eye") comprised the twin sisters Alyce Andrece and Rhea Andreca (real name: Rhae Andrece); James J. Joyce; Jon Joyce; and Randy Joyce.

      • The title is taken from the famous old song, "I'll Be Seeing You", which was a huge popular hit in the 1940s and was written by Irving Kahal and Sammy Fain. However, there is a new song called "All The Old Familiar Faces" featured in the episode.

    • QUOTES (3)

    • NOTES (1)

      • This is one of the most unusual episodes in the history of drama series TV, especially when one considers its era. The entire story is framed by a five-singer "Greek chorus" singing the title theme song (and others) and they move into and out of the scenes whilst the cast continues to perform, oblivious to them. Unique in its day, and much noted at the time, this was one of several episodes which played around with various movie-genre conventions.
