Trivia[edit]

  • Filmed on location at the Pacific Ocean Park in Santa Monica, California.
  • Contains what is likely the first reference to an American casualty in Vietnam on dramatic television, especially significant for the line “There isn’t even supposed to be a war going on there, but my son is dying.” Serling’s original script had Pip serving in Laos. The network corrected him, noting that there were no American soldiers stationed in Laos, and suggested Vietnam as an alternative. There is a more explicit reference to Vietnam in “I Am the Night-Color Me Black”.
  • Jack Klugman's fourth and final Twilight Zone appearance.

Usually, when I watch this episode, I do wonder about this endlessly.

It does seem that Jack Kennedy had gotten soldiers into Iraq, uh, Afghanistan, I mean Laos, I mean Korea, I mean Vietnam.

If Wallace Buford & James_"Earthquake_McGoon"_McGovern_Jr. died in Laos, in 1954, nine years earlier, then that puts this episode in perspective. I have no intention of adding that to the article; but, possibly, someone would. Laos, Kampuchia {Kambuja, Kampuchea, Cambodia}, Vietnam.

Thank You.

Dwight David Eisenhower's 1952 campaign had been: "Vote for peace, vote for Eisenhower." Some peace,...??
