Episode Info

William Reynolds stars as Fitzgerald, a WWII army lieutenant with an unusual and most unwelcome gift. Much to his dismay, Lt. Fitzgerald can stare into the faces of his fellow soldiers and determine who among them will die in combat. Begging to be transferred, Fitzgerald finally gets his wish, but that's not the end of the story. The stellar supporting cast includes Dick York as Captain Riker, Barney Phillips as Capt. Gunther, Warren Oates as a jeep driver, and future director Paul Mazursky (in the first of his three Twilight Zone appearances). Written by Rod Serling, with a musical score by old CBS radio hand Lucien Moraweck, "The Purple Testament" originally aired February 12, 1960.
