The Twilight Zone - Season 3, Episode 23: The Last Rites of Jeff MyrtlebankWriter-director Montgomery Pittman's final Twilight Zone offering was the bucolic comedy 'The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank.' As the youthful title character (James Best) lies in his coffin during his funeral, the assembled mourners listen to the droning words of the local pastor (William Fawcett) -- whereupon Jeff sits bolt upright, very much alive! Doc Bolton (Edgar Buchanan) assumes that he made a misdiagnosis when he declared Jeff dead, but the townsfolk are convinced that the boy has been possessed by the devil, especially after Jeff handily beats up his longtime antagonist Orgram Gatewood (Lance Fuller), something he has never been able to do before. Only Orgram's cousin Comfort (played by director Pittman's daughter-in-law Sherry Jackson) remains unafraid of Jeff, but even she begins to have her doubts during the diabolically amusing final scenes. Blessed with a semi-satirical harmonica score by Tommy Morgan, 'The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank' made its first TV appearance on February 23, 1962.Keywords:
