This episode was originally used as source material for The Twilight Zone television series. It's influence can be seen in other episodes of the series ("The Invaders" for example, which features a lead character who never speaks.). After viewing this episode any fan of the show can see why the late Rod Serling thought so highly of this Oscar winning short film. It's extremely entertaining, very well written and even a little scary. The condemned man's journey back to his home is very exciting. The music used in this episode adds to the episode's appeal. This is "An Occurrence" you should see!
