Revisiting The Twilight Zone: S4 E17: Passage on the Lady Anne
More spooky boats in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by fog, with mysterious people who speak in riddles and never actually letting on as to what is happening. Well, it is intimated of course, and it isn't too hard to follow. Perhaps the ending could have been a little better, but you can't always have everything.
The Ransom couple board the Lady Anne in a fractured state, looking for that last chance. They are met by other passengers, all of whom try to persuade them not to get on the boat. They refuse and the ship sails. So too it appears does their marriage, when they agree that once they arrive in London they will go their separate ways.
While the story itself progresses as expected, it is the characters themselves that keep it enjoyable. The wonderful acting of the support actors around the Ransom couple is fantastic, and they make the show well worth watching. Another Charles Beaumont special.
Rating: Death ship, ghost ship, love boat? 4/5
