  • A con artist arrives in a small town where the naive residents pay him to bring their deceased family members back from the grave.

    The superb "Mr. Garrity and the Graves" is a perfect example of the brilliance of the Twilight Zone and the genius that was Rod Serling. John Dehner is one of my favorite Twilight Zone actors, and he is great in this episode. A con artist named Garrity arrives in an old western town and claims he can raise the dead. Mr. Garrity offers the townspeople a chance to bring their loved ones back to life for a price, ofcourse. The clever Garrity uses illusions to deceive the townsfolk, but not only is he deceiving the unsuspecting residents of Happy, Arizona, in the end it appears he is also deceiving himself.
