  • Trivia

    • The pseudo-artist who painted the main character in the 1940 portrait was named Bersonne. Perhaps this was a jocular play on the French word "personne". In Twilight Zone fashion, one of this word's meanings is "no one".

  • Quotes

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Jordan Herrick, syndicated columnist whose work appears in more than a hundred newspapers. By nature a cynic, a disbeliever, caught for the moment by a lovely vision. He knows the vision he's seen is no dream; she is Pamela Morris, renowned movie star, whose name is a household word and whose face is known to millions. What Mr. Herrick does not know is that he has also just looked into the face--of the Twilight Zone.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Everybody knows Pamela Morris, the beautiful and eternally young movie star. Or does she have another name, even more famous, an Egyptian name from centuries past? It's best not to be too curious, lest you wind up like Jordan Herrick, a pile of dust and old clothing, discarded in the endless eternity of the Twilight Zone.

  • Notes

    • Another Jerry Sohl script where Charles Beaumont received the only on screen credit. Both plotted it together, and Sohl wrote the screenplay.
