Stump the King - Rod Serling - VIDEO
I got a great letter this week...
"I remember watching a documentary, I believe it was about Rod Serling, & on it was mentioned a Western series the producer had developed, starring Lloyd Bridges & Brock Peters. Any idea what this show was called? Or, was it maybe Gene Roddenberry's show? Thanks for the help! Steve Atwell"
This is one of those questions that is a real pleasure to answer because I get to spend a few hours researching and watching clips of the show.
The show in question is called The Loner and was extremely cool. It starred Lloyd Bridges as an ex-Civil War soldier who rode through the West encountering people and situations that you rarely saw in TV westerns.
While Brock Peters wasn't a regular on the show, he did star in a particularly moving episode. This clip from Rod Serling: Submitted for your Approval, a brilliant documentary about Serling, features that episode.
Now for this week's question...
Who is the only actor that Rod Serling ever had a conversation with on The Twilight Zone?
Well done, Toby! Kennan Wynn is the correct answer.
