Who's that Twilight Zone guest star?

Who was in these episodes?

 CBS Television Distribution

Rod Serling is the man. 

The Twilight Zone wouldn't work with anybody else in charge. His singular vision made the show what it was.

But lots of Hollywood heavyweights brought the star power, elevating The Twilight Zone to insane levels of watchability. So here's the deal: We'll name a TZ plot, and you tell us which celebrity was the guest star. Good luck, have fun, and be sure to share your score in the comments section below.

Movie Quiz 06-21-2024. Along with Entertainment and best of Cinema.
This comedy keeps turning up on cable every now and then. When faced with the prospect of watching substandard fare, the clear choice is to go to something that is amusing, as well as entertaining, which is why this film is a good bet to watch.

This movie evokes those bygone years before automation and the arrival of the computers into one's life. The comedy, adapted from the stage with great care and accomplishes all the requisites for a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

The time is the late 50s in Manhattan. A cost controlling expert is hired to make changes in the way the New York firm can cut costs in all areas of business. Mr. XXXXXXX solution is to start automation in several areas, such as in the payroll department. He faces a formidable task when he takes to task making the research department more efficient, in the days before Google.

Mr. XXXXXX has to deal with the smart Mrs. YYYYYYY , who has more facts and figures at her fingertips than any contraption could find at any given moment. Thus begins a tug of war between the man who is perceived as the "terminator of jobs" and the four women in research. They'll teach him a thing, or two.

The best part of the film is the interplay between the two principals, X and Y Its a tribute to them, as actors, they could work so well together. Also, toward the end of the movie, at the company's Christmas party, we see a playful, and drunk Y singing Cole Porter's "Night and Day" to the beat of the bongo playing of RS. That scene shows a playful Y having a great time in front of the cameras.

This delicious movie will certainly please anyone looking for a good time. Mrs. Y excellent work as the spinsterish B. Mr. X is equally her match as the efficiency expert who is not in touch with reality.

The top 2 cast members Mr X with 2 Academy awards and Mrs. Y has 4 should tell you these are the best of their time in cinema. The supporting cast is most wonderful too.

This movie is all set to play before your eyes once a quizzer gets the movie.

The Glass Key is a great Noir film. Alan Ladd plays a great part and knows just how to handle himself even around his heavy handed boss. All the noir phrases hit the screen on this one. You know those quick come backs when someone asks a question. Some our rather silly but they get the point straight across. Bonita Granville plays a part in it and remember she played Nancy Drew Mystery series movies. Like them too and I will be playing some along the way of our quizzes.

I have copied all the movies and caught the rest of the clips. I love that Columbo episode with Anne Baxter. She was a great actress. FredFlix was fun. Interesting how wholesome Peggy Fleming looked. Her costume was so simple compared to what the ladies wear today. I laughed a WML. I loved when Dorothy thought she had it with Ray Bolger. Arlene looks so different with dark hair. Well thanks for everything tonight.

I just watched again WML and was laughing so much over Cesar Romero answers. Watching the panels faces were also great. It for me top 10 I've seen. I have most all of Anne Baxter's films. They will come about in due time. If still no YT program I will compact them into one play list on YT. That is easy since I can just click and they will go into it. I have over 200 play lists there now that I started 10+ years ago. I will name it Quizzer something or another. Have a great wonderful weekend.

Hi Tex. I got as far as Fred Flix before I conked out last night. That "Love is Blue" song in the beginning was truly a blast from the past. I remember hearing it a lot as a kid. My oldest cousin had an album with that song on it. It had a naked lady on the cover with a butterfly painted on her face. As a young child I was rather shocked by that. Lol! I remember Peggy Fleming. So graceful back then. Now it is more of a gymnastic competition to see how many jumps you can get in. As a five-year-old I was not very aware of the war in Vietnam, although as it stretched on I became more aware. I do remember seeing Walter Cronkhite on the news. I could be wrong but it seems to me that news reporting was more reliable back then. No biases or agendas. I don't watch or listen to the news anymore. I don't remember "Blackbeard's Ghost." I do remember Dean Jones being in a lot of Disney movies, though. Thanks for your efforts and hopefully the YT problem will get straightened out in the near future. Have a good weekend. I hope it's not too hot for you!

There must have been reasons why MeTV did not want to continue the YT vid program. Taking up too much space, costs and such. I have been deleting my YT vids each Sunday. I believe whomever posted a vid through YT it has been removed. Still can upload pictures so I can still post the movie posters. This must have just happened since last Friday it was working. Which also means that LoveMeTV22 had all of them taken down except those which are downloaded and uploaded. You can't from what I gather upload a YT video itself. I though give you the whereabouts of them. What I can do in the future is this. I can make a playlists of the upcoming Entertainment which goes to one spot (address) and will have all of them on a list for ones to watch that way. So only one instead of 7 different address to the YT site. You may have to sit through 10 seconds or so of ads. Then vid will play then you just go on to the next one or skip the ones you dislike onto the next. Todays program was going to be one of my best for entertainment.

AWL is back from hospital. I got a couple of messages from her.

Great clips. Hotel California is a song from my youth and Nancy S. on Ed Sullivan reminds me of childhood Sunday nights. Brief Encounter is a poignant film. It’s a movie I’ve watched many times. I can’t believe how young Keanu Reeves looks in The Matrix. Bad Day At Black Rock is a great movie. Interesting how paranoia can infect people. I’m looking forward to watching all of them. Thanks.

Here's another one to keep things going: in one episode, silent film comedian Buster Keaton plays a janitor in the 1890s who happens upon a time machine and gets transported to the "modern" world of 1960. There he befriends a guy who thinks he can make some money out of the deal. The actor playing the shady con man later appeared in memorable episodes of both "Lost in Space" and "Star Trek". Can you name him, or describe his roles on those series?

Aced it. I had to. TZ is one of my three all-time favorite shows. I have a dispute on ques. #4. "Mr Dingle, the Strong" is played by Burgess Meredith, not Don Rickles. Rickles plays the bully who slugs Meredith.
Yes, Rickles is in the episode "Mr Dingle, the Strong," whereas the other options were not.

10-10. Tired of paying for cable. I have seen every TZ, Aldred Hitchcock, Mannix, Andy Griffith etc.
