Episode Info

Adapted for television by Charles Beaumont from his own short story, the Twilight Zone episode "Elegy" was first telecast February 19, 1960. Making an emergency landing on an Earth-like asteroid, three astronauts -- Webber (Kevin Hagen), Meyers (Jeff Morrow), and Kirby (Don Dubbins) -- are astonished to find that the little orb is fully populated by humans. Thing of it is, all of the humans are "frozen" in place, like wax statues. A seemingly harmless little man named Jeremy Wickwire (Cecil Kellaway), who is actually a robot, provides an explanation. . .and a few additional surprises. Van Cleave's musical score for "Elegy" would pop up in excerpt form in several future episodes.
