MEET ROD SERLING (1 hour) DVD FREE TO ALL MEMBERS (ask for a VHS tape if you can't play DVDs)
The Rod Serling Memorial Foundation was directly involved in the first and third three videos on this DVD. And none of this material is available anywhere else, at any price. In Rod Serling's memory, we at the Foundation encourage you to share this video with others. Rod died too soon; help keep him alive and in the public consciousness!
green bullet ball Tribute > Promo (1988, 10 minutes) This tribute to Rod Serling morphs into a promo of the TV series "The New Twilight Zone" apparently designed to entice potential sponsors. The biographical sections drew upon material provided by the Foundation.
green bullet ball Genesee Beer commercial (circa 1970 - 30 seconds)
green bullet ball Famous Writers School (circa 1965 - 5 minutes) Rod hosts one of TV's first infomercials. This plug for the Famous Writer's School in Bridgeport Connecticut, which Rod helped found, has a sincerity that is classically emblematic of those (relatively) innocent times.
green bullet ball The Foundation itself produced "Day of a Playwright" (1988 - 30 minutes) and released it in conjunction with the opening of a permanent display of Rod Serling historical materials at the Forum Theater in Binghamton, NY. Helen Foley, Rod's middle school teacher and lead character in the Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare as a Child," narrates the video.
green bullet ball Requiem Introduction (1980 - 10 minutes) Actors Keenan Wynn and Jack Palance, producer Martin Manulus, and director Ralph Nelson discuss production of the 1957 Playhouse 90 episode "Requiem for a Heavyweight," which was vaudeville comedian Ed Wynn's first dramatic role. In a special treat, four-episode Twilight Zone star Jack Klugman introduces 1958 footage of Rod Serling accepting his Emmy award for the Requiem script. The episode itself is commercially available.

If you cannot play a DVD, we will gladly send you a VHS tape.
