Episode Info

College professor Kittridge (Edgar Stehli) cannot understand why the history lectures of his future son-in-law, Professor Walter Jameson (Kevin McCarthy), seem so vividly real -- as if Jameson were actually present at the incidents he describes. It turns out that Jameson is actually several hundred (if not several thousand ) years old, and that he has been blessed -- or cursed -- with the gift of immortality. Only the intervention of a "ghost" from Jameson's past can prevent him from ruining the life of Kittridge's daughter Suzanna (Dody Heath). Boasting a powerful script by Charles Beaumont, not to mention the makeup prowess of William Tuttle, "Long Live Walter Jameson" made its first TV appearance on March 18, 1960.
