This episode of The Twilight Zone might have seemed all too familiar when it first aired in 1960. Following the red scare of the 1950s, “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” depicts how the residents of a typical suburban neighborhood lose their marbles after a meteor flies overhead, causes a power failure and prompts a sci-fi-addicted resident to blame the incident on human-looking aliens. A witch hunt ensues, someone dies and Maple Street is never the same — and the twist revealed at the end leaves little hope for other towns.
Too bad the pic above is NOT Billy Mumy, who played Anthony Fremont in the episode. It's a pic of Ron Howard. Dolts.
@DenisJones The picture for "It's a Good Life" IS of Billy Mumy. That picture is taken from the scene where he is in the front yard creating his "monster." That picture is widely circulated in connection with this episode. Look in the mirror before calling people dolts.
