    I was going to list my personal favorite stories/segments from this season, but it started to become a long list: 'Since Aunt Ada Came To Stay'; 'The Devil Is Not Mocked'; 'The Dark Boy'; 'Camera Obscura'; 'Professor Peabody's Last Lecture'. I kind of had to give up or it would have gone on longer. I noticed typing these that most of these were based on short stories published in Weird Tales and the like. I think part of what made this show, and shows like Thriller before it, work was the excellent source material.

I agree. Great source material made for higher quality stories. Skimming the episodes, I can’t find any more that seem familiar but I’ll bet there are episodes I’ve seen. Unlike The Twilight Zone, which was always on, I remember Night Gallery being syndicated late at night when I was around 7 or 8(late 70s) and then again In The afternoons when I was 14 or 15(mid-80s), probably on cable, so I didn’t watch it too often.

    (Possibly) interesting trivia: Rudy Vallee's co-star in 'Marmalade Wine was Robert Morse, his co-star in 'How To Succeed In Business Without Trying'.

Well I find it interesting. I’ve always known the name Rudy Vallee but I’ve found when I looked him up the other day, I really knew nothing about him.
