FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: The cast of characters: a cat and a mouse. This is the latter, the intended victim who may or may not know that he is to die, be it by butchery or ballet. His name is Major Ivan Kuchenko. He has, if events go according to certain plans, perhaps three or four more hours of living. But an ignorance shared by both himself and his executioner is of the fact that both of them have taken a first step into the Twilight Zone.

    • Boris: Tell me when.
      Vassiloff: A good death is the death of art. A bad one is the death of a butcher. You, Boris, are a butcher. I am an artist.

    • Vassiloff: Well, it's quite a place you have here. Who occupied it before you? A rat?
      Kuchenko: I had no luxury of choices.
      Vassiloff: No, indeed, you have not. In that respect you are a very poor man, Major.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Major Ivan Kuchenko, on his way west, on his way to freedom, a freedom bought and paid for by a most stunning ingenuity. And exit one Commissar Vassiloff, who forgot that there are two sides to an argument--and two parties on the line. This has been the Twilight Zone.
