A cache of [Kenneth] Siegel’s photographs from the ’70s, which included these images of the the “S.N.L.” cast and the others taken in Times Square, were given to the New-York Historical Society in 2008. Tom Schiller, who produced short films and wrote for “S.N.L.,” says that after each week’s show was finished, everyone headed downtown to One Fifth Avenue (now Otto) for an afterparty — not, usually, to Greek joints. “It’s rare to see them all lined up like that,” Schiller says. “It’s weird and wonderful.” (source)

"You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into the Twilight Zone."
Happy Birthday to The Twilight Zone, which premiered on CBS this day in 1959.

A horse is a horse…of course..of course..
Oh I do remember this tv show.  It was “Mr. Ed”.  It was all about a talking horse that ilved with this man named Wilber.

Trivia for you:  Mister Ed was financed by George Burns and made through his production company.
And it was the first syndicated series to transfer to network (CBS).
