Last year, director Jeff Lieberman (JUST BEFORE DAWN, SQUIRM) came up to hang with me at the Toronto International Film Festival. Over lunch, our banter turned to a shared love of Rod Serling’s immortal THE TWILIGHT ZONE and to my surprise, Lieberman told me that, way back in 1972, he had worked with Serling. Lieberman was working with the Janus Films people on a series called “The Art of Film” and the very, very young future BLUE SUNSHINE helmer had the task of sitting down with Serling, directing his narration for the show.
Lieberman told me in detail how surreal an experience it was, how Serling had to do multiple takes when his tongue got tied and tired, how Serling was prone to saying “Oh Balls” often and other funny, amusing, wonderful moments of this remarkable encounter…
Well, after combing through his no doubt dense vaults, Jeff has found that audio footage. He uploaded it digitally and then uploaded it to YouTube in its entirety, flaws and all. For Serling and THE TWILIGHT ZONE fans, it’s a treasure, showing the iconic writer and television host at his most human.
For Lieberman fans, its further evidence of an adventurous life in cinema.
