I'm participating in the 2015 A to Z Challenge where for the month of April I will blog the letters of the alphabet in order every day except Sundays. The participation list is HERE -- if you want to join in.
Before I begin, let me first say THANK YOU to Arlee Bird, the brain child behind this challenge, and his team of minions for all the work they do to make A to Z a roaring success. Happy A-Day Everyone!
A is for (The) After HoursTwilight Zone: Season 1, Episode 34
The After Hours (10 Jun. 1960)
Marsha White (Anne Francis) visits a department store looking for a gold thimble as a gift for her mother. When she can't find it an elevator operator suggests she try the 9th floor. When delivered to the ninth floor, Marsha discovers it's abandoned, but not before the elevator door closes, leaving her stranded. Suddenly, a sales clerk arrives with a gold thimble, which she purchases. In the returned elevator Marsha notices the thimble is scratched. When she tries to complain she is told the store doesn't have a ninth floor. As she is pursing this issue she notices a mannequin who bears a striking resemblance to the sales woman on the mysterious ninth floor. Marsha's return visit to the mystifying ninth floor reveals her dilemma. Watch the full episode here.
Musings: "To Thy Own Self Be True" -Shakespeare. This episode of The Twilight Zone reminds me that it is always best to remember who you are and to stay true to yourself. It doesn't matter if others see you as stiff and unbending, you, and those who know and love you, know who you really are. As for what movie remake resembles The After Hours, it's Mannequin (1987) starring Andrew McCarthy, Kim Cattrall, and Estelle Getty.
Today is also the first Wednesday of the month which means it's time for another IWSG post. What's my writing insecurity this month? It's an easy one, will I be able to finish this challenge and visit all the blogs I love!?!? I'll give it my best shot.
Are you part of the A to Z Challenge? Insecure about anything? Staying true to yourself?
