Title: Night Gallery
Post by: Memphremagog on April 28, 2012, 10:05:19 PM
Any fans of this '70's anthology show here? One of the spookiest shows to hit television and had Rod Serling as the host. The paintings that introduced each story ran from not-so hot to fantastic, as did the tales themselves. Over three seasons, a lot of talent of the day were featured on there: Vincent Price, John Carradine, Bill Bixby, Leslie Nielson, David Carradine, Leonard Nimoy, David McCallum, Burgess Meredith and more. All three seasons are finally available on DVD now as well.

This series belongs up there with Twilight Zone, Thriller and Outer Limits for some fantastic storytelling of the weird and bizarre kind. What are some of your favorite episodes?

Off the top, Pickman's Model ( adapted from HP Lovecraft) & The Doll, from an Algernon Blackwood story, also one of the scariest reads I've encountered.

The Doll is one of the creepiest tales presented on there..Good call!

I loved the surreal quality the show had.  The episodes I remember best are Cool Air (from the Lovecraft short story) and The Girl With The Hungry Eyes (from a short story by Fritz Leiber).

When I was a kid (the 70's), "Night Gallery" was one of those things that was a little too much...a touch scarier than typical scary TV fare (and even some movies).  Even when the intent was a morality play, the vengeful ghost would be depicted in a most unwholesome and frightful way, as I recall.  The paintings themselves (prints of which they used to sell in magazines and comic books, remember?) were even a little too much!

Didn't dare watch it as a kid, and then even later I found some of the episodes very scary!

The opening score was nightmarish.  I remember watching (I think) channel 11 during Summer weeknights and getting this lineup:
The Odd Couple
The Honeymooners
The Twilight Zone
Night Gallery...

WOW.

When I was a kid we lived in a duplex and my bed was up against the common wall.  I'd hear the neighbors watching Night Gallery while I tried to sleep. Scarred me for life.

The paintings from the show are easily found online http://www.nightgallery.net/index.html?title.html&0 (http://www.nightgallery.net/index.html?title.html&0) but, I'd like to see them collected in a nice book.

I absolutely love Night Gallery (even though when my grandma watched it late at night I ran into the other room when the opening music played.....but that doesnt leave this thread.  ;))

Pamela's Voice is one of my favorites--just a short, fun horror story that has a real kicker of an ending. It's just what Serling does, totally awesome.

Now the best of the absolute best, for me anyhow, is not at all horror themed. "They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar." This episode is INCREDIBLE! way ahead of it's time and totally out of the box as far as the genre goes.

I remember watching that a few years back and for few reasons I was just down on myself, feeling like crap. The entire idea of this episode help lift my spirits a bit. You can't live in the past, gotta press forward and move on. The shot of the main character crossing the street to the new bar and his "new life" right while they show the wrecking ball knock down Tim Riley's place......to me...that is borderline genius storytelling and TV.

What! The Caterpillar is so far down the list of best episodes. I'll tell you it scared the life out of me at the time because a few months before I watched that episode back in the 70's, I had found a real Earwig on my pillow! To this day I'm convinced that it bored through my brain, my proof you ask. On windy days I can hear the wind whistling through my ears (well that bit's a lie but I am a touch mad). BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Post by: Universal Steve on May 19, 2012, 12:04:50 AM
Night Gallery was a great show. I am surprised how many people I talk to don't know of it. Some don't even remember that it started out as one of the four NBC Sunday Mystery movies. It was on only once a month then it got popular enough to get a regular series. I remember when they hacked up episodes of The Sixth Sense with Gary Collins. It used ot be an hour show but it didn't so well in syndication so Universal edited them to half hour shows and paid Rod Serling to air them on Night Gallery in syndication. They had paintings made for them and in the opening it said it was a Sxith Sense episode. Rod Serling himself said that they made no sense but he got paid and that was the bottom line. He hosted those also. I have Season 2 and just got 3. Hoping to get 1 soon . I noticed they did not put the Sixth Sense episodes on the DVD. I hope they release that show in it's hour long format on DVD. I used to have a couple of the lithographs of the paintings.  There was just so many good episodes I couldn't name any of them as a favorite. They all were kind of a favorite.

This show actually creeped me out as a kid. My Mom loved it though so I saw it regularly but it was hard going. Even today when I hear the music I get that little shiver racing down my spine. But it's certainly a memorable show, and although I don't recall episode titles, I do remember several episodes, particularly the one with the young girl and the swamp creature in the pit, and the food critic and the spider. Scary stuff.

Post by: Haunted hearse on May 19, 2012, 01:18:57 PM
I really liked the Sixth Sense series, even though it really doesn't fit in with Night Gallery.  It also would make sense for Universal to want to increase the number of Night Gallery episodes, while at the same time find a way to place the "Sixth Sense" into syndication, because that show only lasted a single season.  At least they were willing to pay Serling for the new openings.  I think my favorie episode of the Six sense was the one where the central character was on board an airliner, and kept having this vision of a horsedrawn hearse.  Maybe they could do a seperate DVD of Sixth Sense episodes, with the Serling openings, for those who might want to see them.

I am glad someone else remembers the show. I also remember that episode. It was a pretty good series. I wish that if they released it on DVD, they would do the whole hour long episodes. The stories would make more sense.

remember "Night Gallery" with great affection...I can remember watching it on NBC (I think), in the mis-spent days of youth.  Many important writers had their works adapted or wrote episodes, among them Manly Wade Wellman and Seabury Quinn ("Phantom Farmhouse".  I picked up the first season on DVD, haven't checked to see if there was a Season 2.

One of the shows I remember quite well is "Pickman's Model".

Night Gallery will always be one of my favorites!  My parents sent me to bed and wouldn't let me stay up and watch it when it first aired.  My bed time was 9:00 no exceptions ( my loving the scary stuff didn't bother them).  Luckily, I had a television set  in my room and I would quitely get out of bed and turn on the set with the volume turned down low.  I would sit with my ear pressed to the speaker and watch Night Gallery in the dark. Good times!!! (until I got caught).

What I really love about the show; besides seeing Rod Serling in color, and getting more of his stories is -- that in some episodes you can see some of the house interiors used in Universal Horror Films.

An example is "You Can Come Up Now Mrs. Millikan." The staircase is the same one in The Wolf Man 1941. During the "Gypsy woman? Now we're getting down to it" part of the conversation between Rains and Chaney Jr. The three diamond shaped widows were still quite beautiful even in the 1970s.

Here's the story of a grisly lady
Who was digging up three very lovely ghouls.
All of them had spacious tombs in the graveyard,
Their plots were by the pool.

Here's the story of a mad mad doctor
Who was digging up three guys of his own.
They would form one, but all together...
Like Frankenstein all sewn.

Until the lightning hit the castle by the city
And the Frankenguy and Ghoul soon came to life
Then they both tied the knot and married
And, together, they began the Frankenlife!

The Frankenlife!  The Frankenlife!
This what we all call the Frankenlife!

GREAT topic, very cool show.

" The Caterpillar " 1972           ***spoilers ***STOP READING NOW if you have not seen it...

A nasty little carnivorous insect crawls into Laurence Harvey's ear as he sleeps; it proceeds to burrow through his middle and inner ears and into his brain. Harvey is tied down to his bed and writhes in screaming, tortured, insane agony for days, as the bug EATS its way through his head and emerges through his other ear. The attending physician is amazed --- he's never even heard of anyone surviving this ordeal, and yet Laurence Harvey somehow manages to pull through it. Until, that is, the earwig is identified as a female, and the doctor solemnly informs Harvey that the thing apparently LAID EGGS on its way through his brains.

Yep, I'd say it was a modified Creature mask, and the arms and legs on the monster in the TV guide article look vaguely Creature-like as well. Would they have had access to an original mould?

I'm a Night Gallery fan too. In fact, I've been watching my NG collection in between Horror Films. It's also interesting to see some of the sets from the Universal Horror Films. For instance - the staircase in "You can come up now Mrs. Millikan is the same one that Claude Rains and Lon Jr. have the  "Stop it! Stop it!" and "You can't run away" exchange in the Wolf Man 1941. Awesome series. Jeannette Nolan scared me in "Since Aunt Ada Came To Stay."

Not to mention that classic horror era Universal stars, Gale Sondergard and Martin Kosleck appear in an episode or two..

Yes indeed. Elsa Lanchester in Green Fingers. Julie Addams in The Miracle at Camafeo. I watched some of my favorite episodes today like:

The Messiah on Mott Street/The Pained Mirror.
The Phantom Farmhouse/Silent Snow, Secret Snow. Orson Welles narration is fantastic. His narration in King of Kings 1961 is some of the finest put on film.
Cool Air/Camera Obscura.

I really like The Waiting Room. The cast is awesome! I have to tell you that I really love the performances Albert Salmi gave with The Twilight Zone episodes he did, and also in The Waiting Room. It's great how he tells Steve Forrest off. I wish he would have been in that episode a little longer. Albert Salmi lived up here in the State of Washington. He died (apparently suicide) in Spokane, WA.

Salmi was a great character actor in his time. It was a tragedy about his death; murdered his wife then took his own life. I agree about the cast of The Waiting Room..a lot of old time Western character actors and each turning in a brief, but memorable, appearance.

Very fond of this serious, there was a rather remorseful sadness about many TV horrors of that era, the '70s. You also find that in TV movies like the Devil's Daughter, Night Stalker and Black Noon.
I have a real thing for the Death on a Barge episode, I think Lesley Warren was one of the best female vampires ever. I really however don't like the way MeTV handles it by running it so late, and the way Universal packaged it. It's probably the worst reedited program running on MeTV.

Silent Snow Secret Snow is a great episode. And a terrific short story too.

Worth remembering that Welles was Serling's original choice to narrate TWILIGHT ZONE, but his asking price was too high.

And of course, Orson WAS one of the best narrators in Classic Era Radio, along with a few select others like Jack Beck and Fred Foy. If any folks like his film work, but haven't sampled his radio stuff, they're missing a bet!

I know this takes us even further off topic... but I so wish there existed outtakes from Orson Welles' narration from the "Transformers" movie. One could only imagine him saying "What the hell is a Megatron??"

Here is a video of the infamous "fozen peas" meltdown Orson had while trying to record a commercial for Jolly Green Giant:

I especially like the background music, it's excellent.
It's not the kind that they like put on to loud volume to "scare you"  out of nowhere, with no matching to the voices what so ever. (I think they do that all the time now in series, ugh)

Night Gallery is a fantastic show but when they sold the syndication package they took The Gary Collins tv show The Sixth Sense and put new titles on them and Rod Serling as well so they were "new" Night Galleries , his show was ok but not to the level of Night Gallery

If you watch a night Gallery and see Gary in it the chances are good it is a repackaged Sixth Sense ep.

I was kind of glad they did that.  I enjoyed the sixth sense, I'm sure Rod Serling was fine with doing the new openings, and the more episodes a show has, the better it is for syndication.  The only problem I have, is how they took each Hourlong sixth sense episode, and cut them down to a half hour.

I don't know it, of course few American TV shows are familiar to me.  Our kids are starting on Twilight Zone and Outer Limits, a few Thrillers, One Step Beyond's. 

Hubby only vaguely remembers it, and said it was intermittent, then he lost interest in trying to locate it's broadcast time.  He said his expectations were probably too high, too - "Nothing could touch Twilight Zone," he's said. 

Thanks for all of these notes.  It gives us a good starting point for many episodes to start with.

I think it may be because The Twilight Zone is a better show. Let's face it -- some of the best Night Gallery episodes are the ones that Rod Serling wrote. One of my favorite "things" about Night Gallery is - you can see some of the sets from the old Universal Horror Films in some of the episodes.

For instance; in the episode: You Can Come Up Now Mrs. Millikan (with Ozzie & Harriet), look at the staircase. It's the same one you see in The Wolf Man 1941 when Sir John tells his son: "You're not a child Larry and you believe in the superstitions of a Gypsy woman!"

Night Gallery was designed to be Horror & Twilight Zone was more Science Fiction with some Fantasy also.  Twilight Zone had better casting too, although Night Gallery did okay in that respect too.
Title: Re: Night Gallery
Post by: Scatter on December 16, 2016, 08:22:11 PM
TZ is certainly a better show. NG is uneven, to say the least. But it has its own charms. Serling had almost no control over NG, which explains the uneven quality. It's a shame his talents weren't better utilized in his last decade or so....and so sad that he had so little time to share his gifts.

If we're being honest here, there are a number of Twilight Zone episodes I never want to see again.  Both shows had their ups and downs.  The Serling episodes of both series always come off as the strongest, most watchable entries.  I own all of TZ and all of NG on DVD.  I am much more willing to watch NG again in its entirety than TZ for the simple fact that there are just certain TZ episodes I know are amazing and kind of just want to see those ones over and over again, leaving the others to the depths of the Twilight Zone.  Nothing in either show is particularly terrible, but consistently good is not something I would say about TZ or NG.  There are just more absolute winners in TZ.

There's a guy on eBay who sells paintings of all the artwork from NG. He's from Hong Kong, but I must admit, they're pretty impressive looking.  In the $200-300 range.

If we're being honest here, there are a number of Twilight Zone episodes I never want to see again.  Both shows had their ups and downs.  The Serling episodes of both series always come off as the strongest, most watchable entries.  I own all of TZ and all of NG on DVD.  I am much more willing to watch NG again in its entirety than TZ for the simple fact that there are just certain TZ episodes I know are amazing and kind of just want to see those ones over and over again, leaving the others to the depths of the Twilight Zone.  Nothing in either show is particularly terrible, but consistently good is not something I would say about TZ or NG.  There are just more absolute winners in TZ.

I generally feel the same, however, it should be said that there are also five seasons of Twilight Zone versus three of Gallery..however, I also feel that there are more duds in Zone due to this as well.

When Decades had their "Rod, White and Blue" Marathon on July 4, I could watch every single episode, one right after the other.  But all of the episodes were penned by Serling.  If I put in the DVDs, I know there would be a number I'd skip on every disc.  I am glad that TZ was made and that we have the awesome episodes we have, but I feel that any new TZ efforts should follow the "Columbo" mystery movie format, where it's still a TV series, but you only get a few high quality episodes each season.
