Now, I can appreciate the humour that this was written and performed with, and it is one of those episodes of the Twilight Zone that allows that that to come through in the performance and not try to dilute it. And this is well acted in this respect by both Larry Blyden and Arch Johnson in their roles of Rance McGrew and Jesse James.
So why does this not stick with me as one of the top echelon of the series? I guess because in the long run it sticks with this formula too long. The cross-over to the past, and the real Jesse James works well enough. What he has to say in trying to instruct the actor or the real person is fine. But the return to the present, to the movie in progress, and the appearance of Jesse James in the present, alive and kicking, and now creating changes himself... well, the storyline just went a bit far in the kooky direction for me.
Rating: Watch the mirror. 3/5.
