  • "Marcia Marcia Marcia..."

    10

    Anne Francis is wonderful here, in a role that seems tailor-made for her: where she can tilt her head to the side and look puzzled and say, "Wait, that doesn't seem to make sense at all..." The dark-featured lady who waits on her is a perfect combination of elegance and menace, and of course we also get to see the redoubtable James Millhollin (who has to be a cousin of Franklin Pangborn) doing a redoubtable double take. This episode btw features the second-most famous "Marcia Marcia Marcia..." in TV history. Okay, the premise is arguably a bit on the silly side, but it's done so consummately well (and with touches of humor and panache throughout) that it passes muster and then some...kind of like the best TZ episode that John Collier never wrote.
