Semi-Literary Trivia #7 – Rod Serling


“You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead—your next stop, the Twilight Zone.”

Almost 40 years after Rod Serling died, a well-known producer has bought the rights to his final script.  J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions is said to be trying to develop it into a miniseries.

Rod Serling was a very successful TV scriptwriter — but he was probably more famous for his voice. As the host of  The Twilight Zone on TV, he introduced each week’s episode — at first with voice-over narration, then in front of the camera.

Serling also lent his voice to radio ads for a candidate who entered the presidential primaries as an underdog. Which candidate was it?

  1. John F. Kennedy – versus Adlai Stevenson, 1960
  2. Robert F. Kennedy – versus Lyndon B. Johnson, 1968
  3. Nelson Rockefeller – versus Richard Nixon, 1960
  4. Harold Stassen – versus Richard Nixon, 1968
  5. Eugene McCarthy – versus Lyndon B. Johnson, 1968
  6. Ayn Rand – versus Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, 1960
  7. Norman Mailer – versus Myra Breckinridge, 1968
