Back by popular demand…maybe? We have a brand new episode of the Saturday Frights Podcast. This time the Projectionist and myself discuss The Howling Man. Truly one of the best episodes of the legendary Twilight Zone television series. Of course one of those reasons is it was written by Charles Beaumont. Adapted from the short story by Beaumont also entitled The Howling Man.
Certainly in this episode we give a full synopsis of The Howling Man. Touching upon not just the talented writer that Charles Beaumont was. But in addition we discuss the very talented crew that was featured in the 1960 episode. Such as H.M. Wynant, Robin Hughes, as well as John Carradine.
A brief synopsis of the story. An American, who shortly after World War I is on a walking tour of Europe. While traveling he becomes lost and finds himself seeking shelter in a hermitage. Which I might add appears to house a pitiful individual…The Howling Man.
As always I hope you will enjoy the podcast. The Projectionist and myself realize it has been a few months since we last had an episode. As always though, we do our best to entertain. I hope you will indeed be kind enough to share your own memories of this Twilight Zone episode in the comments section.
