In the Zone: ‘The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine’


“Picture of a woman looking at a picture. Movie great of another time, once-brilliant star in a firmament no longer a part of the sky, eclipsed by the movement of earth and time. Barbara Jean Trenton, whose world is a projection room, whose dreams are made out of celluloid. Barbara Jean Trenton, struck down by hit-and-run years and lying on the unhappy pavement, trying desperately to get the license number of fleeting fame.”

See the Twilight Zone episode originally aired on October 23, 1959, which starred Ida Lupino as an aging film actress who longs for her glory days on the silver screen. A panel discussion will follow.

Watch and discuss the episode. The Twilight Zone anthology is still relevant today, in many ways Black Mirror has picked up where it left off. However, the Twilight Zone still has the power to unsettle us with its tales–only time will tell if Netflix’s anthology will be able to compete for the future’s favor.

(This episode from The Twilight Zone is being screened courtesy of CBS Broadcasting Inc.)
