"The place is here, the time is now, and the journey into the shadows that we're about to watch could be our journey."
These were the first words ever spoken on the classic television show, The Twilight Zone, and they convey the trademark mystery of author Rod Serling, greatest of all television screenwriters.
Ithaca College, where Serling taught, is hosting a celebration of his life and work this Friday and Saturday.
The highlights are a Twilight Zone marathon on Friday night: a screening of digitally remastered episodes voted most popular by an I.C. poll; and on Saturday, a table reading of a script by Serling about the racist murder of Emmett Till, considered too controversial by corporate sponsors to be aired, and never produced.
Details of these and all conference events are available at www.ithaca.edu/rhp/serling/
