On this date in 1960

The Twilight Zone aired the episode “The Howling Man”

Synopsis: Seeking refuge from a storm, a traveler comes upon a bizarre abbey of monks, who have imprisoned a man who begs for his help. When he confronts the head monk, he is told that the man is the Devil, and he must decide whom to believe.

ELLINGTON:
You haven’t put an end to-to suffering.
There’s still murders, robberies. Even now
while we’re talking, people are starving.
JEROME:
The suffering man was meant to endure. We
cause most of our own grief. We need no
help from him. It is the unnatural
catastrophe, the great wars, the
overwhelming pestilences, the wholesale
sinning that we have stopped.

Find a way to watch it. It’s on Hulu. To me this episode says a lot, I put my self in Monk Jerome’s shoes; trying to awaken the masses. If you don’t watch it, what do you think Mr. Ellington did???
