  • Trivia

    • It is very unlikely that all those townspeople, including the town drunk, would have at least $500 cash on their person. This was probably done to speed up the plot resolution but still, that translates to at least $10,000 in today's dollars.

    • It's established that Garrity has no magical powers. So how does his henchman, disguised as the dead brother, disappear in the middle of the street in front of over a dozen witnesses?

  • Quotes

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Introducing Mr. Jared Garrity, a gentleman of commerce, who in the latter half of the nineteenth century plied his trade in the wild and woolly hinterlands of the American West. And Mr. Garrity, if one can believe him, is a resurrector of the dead--which, on the face of it, certainly sounds like the bull is off the nickel. But to the scoffers amongst you, and ladies and gentlemen from Missouri, don't laugh this one off entirely, at least until you've seen a sample of his wares and an example of his services. The place is Happiness, Arizona, the time about 1890. And you and I have just entered a saloon where the bar whiskey is brewed, bottled, and delivered from the Twilight Zone.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Exit Mr. Garrity, a would-be charlatan, a make-believe con man and a sad misjudger of his own talents. Respectfully submitted from an empty cemetery on a dark hillside that is one of the slopes leading to the Twilight Zone.
