Editorial Reviews

Episodes: "Mr. Dingle, the Strong" (Ep. 55, March 3, 1959) - A timid salesman (Burgess Meredith) is given super strength by a Martian experimenter. He eventually returns to normal--briefly. For the experiments have just begun! "Two" (Ep. 66, September 15, 1961) - Two lone survivors (Elizabeth Montgomery, Charles Bronson) of a nuclear holocaust must start the world anew--a difficult prospect since they are from opposing sides in the war! "A Passage for Trumpet" (Ep. 32, May 20, 1960) - After committing suicide, an unsuccessful trumpet player (Jack Klugman) is given a second chance at life. But first he must learn what it means to be dead in a world full of life. "The Four of Us are Dying" (Ep. 13, January 1, 1960) - Gifted with the ability to change his face, Arch Hammer devises a plan to elevate himself. The plan works perfectly until he's caught with the wrong face at the wrong time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gamesman ship at several interesting levels May 13, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Jack Klugman is brilliant as an unchallenged pool shark who calls to the edge of the "Twilight Zone" for a worthy, if deceased challenger. As Fats Brown, Winters is nibble and smart as a Jackie Gleason styled hustler. The pay off on this show doesn't come until the end, so do not tune out too quickly. Steel is a slightly other matter. Serling was a boxer when younger and, despite his small stature, was rather skilled. This piece is certainly not up to the standard of "Requiem for a Heavyweight," coincidently on the U.S. Steel Hour, but examines the courage inherent in man's quest to control his universe. The premise of "Steel" has boxing for humans outlawed. Robots are sent to do man's work. Unfortunately, what do you do when your metal mealticket is damaged and you need the money to repair him? Lee Marvin plays the aptly nicknamed Steel who was a fighter before is was outlawed. You may guess from the previous sentence how the protagonists deal with the problem. Not unlike "Requiem,"the underdog scores a victory of sorts which will satisfy without being ridiculous. I recommend "Requiem" with Jack Palance for a true examination of Serling at the height of his writing ability dealing with this subject he obviously loved. Despite that, the Twilight Zone at its weakest is still superior to most television and movies of today. This is certainly not at its weakest.

5.0 out of 5 stars "A Game of Pool" Is a Winner! October 10, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
These two sports-related episodes of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, "Steel" and "A Game of Pool," are about the potential - and the limits - of human ability. "Steel," made in 1963, is set in "1974" - an era in which professional boxing is done by robots, not by humans. After his mechanical boxer breaks down, "Steel" (Lee Marvin), himself a former boxer, decides to fight in its place. Though Steel comes to grief in the ring, his experience teaches a lesson that is particularly relevant today, in the computer age. "A Game of Pool" is a nearly thirty minute face-off between two characters, Jesse Cardiff (Jack Klugman), a "pool shark" who wants to be recognized as "the best," and the legendary "`Fats Brown'" (Jonathon Winters), who returns from the dead to challenge Jesse to a game, the stakes of which are Jesse's life. Klugman, in his usual "urban everyman" role, gives a characterization that veers between bravado and vulnerability; Winters' cool, thoroughly self-assured pool champion is the perfect foil for this man who, in his quest for greatness, has let his world shrink to the dimensions of a pool hall. "A Game of Pool" is a gripping episode with a chilling ending; it is also a chance to see two riveting actors at work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Klugman and Winters February 9, 2005
By Michael
Format:VHS Tape
"A Game of Pool" is a riveting two-man show (duodrama?) about winning, losing, and competition set almost entirely within the confines of a pool room. Jack Klugman, here in his second of four TWLIGHT ZONE appearances, gives a typically intense and subtle performance as pool champ-wannabe Jesse Cardiff. Jonathan Winters is terrific as his rival for the pool shark's mantle. One could hardly guess that Winters was a comedian rather than an actor and that this was his first dramatic role, so assured and witty a performer is he. "A Game of Pool" deserves to be compared with other films, such as 12 ANGRY MEN, that derive tension from a closed setting. I'd include "Pool" among the TWILIGHT ZONE classics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of Vol. 4 May 19, 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Two - a big nuclear war is over and only two people are left on earth, a man and a woman. Good episode.
The four of us are dying - A man has the ability to turn into anyone he wants. It sounds good but gives him a certain problem, average
A Passage for trumpet - a drunk trumpet player sells his trumpet and meets an angel, then his life gets better, good
Mr. Dingle the strong - a loser gets great strength from aliens that changes his life. Best one in this Vol.
