Two Twilight Zone Birthdays Today

George Clayton Johnson ~ 84

I want to be remembered as a person who early on in his life took control of his life and set goals. When people gave me a lined paper, I wrote the other way. When people expect some certain behavior from me, I will frustrate their expectations. – Archive of American Television

Earl Hamner, Jr. ~ 90

When I came from New York to Hollywood in 1961 Rod Serling gave me my first job – an assignment on “The Twilight Zone.” That job opened the door to a lifelong career in television and film and I will always be in Rod’s debt. – You, Me and the Lamp Post
