  • "Frank-lin!...Frank-lin!..."


    Wonderful to see Everett Sloane doing something for TV. And I love watching his character self-destruct without a clue of what's happening to him (and without ever really changing his point of view toward the foolish evils of gambling either). Janiss also turns in a good performance as his wife. The end, with the single coin rolling from the sardonic and malevolent machine, is Serling at his cynical and mocking best, and the music throughout suits this atmosphere perfectly.
