The Twilight Zone: “Nightmare At 20,000 Feet”
The things I remember were the difficulties in making it. We shot those episodes in three days. But on that one, on the afternoon of the second day, they told us we had to finish that day. I said, “You’re crazy.” We were on a motion picture stage at MGM, and the studio had a feature that wanted that stage because it was an airplane stage. We were told that the following morning they were moving in. We worked all night finishing that show. I mean, literally all night. I think we finished when the sun came up. We had to finish, or we were thrown out… It was a great group of people to work with. It was a challenge, it was fun, it was wonderful. I loved Bill Shatner, I loved the whole cast, and we had a good time making it.
