How well do you remember The Twilight Zone episode ''The Hitch-Hiker?"

It was a long road across the heartland of America for this woman. Or was it?

"The Hitch-Hiker" has long-been deemed one of the best episodes of The Twilight Zone, the anthology series that has stood the test of time over and over again. 

Rod Serling introduces a woman who gets lost in the Zone during a cross-country trip, one that features more than a few bumps in the road. Along the way, a hitchhiker pops up several times, confusing and scaring the woman.

10/10. You might say I know Nan Adams pretty well. I also know Mrs Whitney answered the phone when she called her mother at the end but the quiz didn't as that.

9/10 definitely one of my favorite episodes. It's based on a radio play by Louise Fletcher by the same name. It played on the Orson Welles Show in 1941. The driver was a man in the original play.

It's definitely creepy that the "ghost" of Nan Adams was seen and interacted with by the sailor and the garage mechanic...brrrrr

Welles also played the same role on Suspense, I think a year later

8 of 10. The creepy guy who played the hitchhiker was a good fit for the part. I "rode my thumb" a lot back in my teenage days. A lot of times while I was waiting at the bus stop. No more of that nowadays, way too dangerous and also illegal to solicit a ride in a public roadway...

Born Ingrid Stensland October 18, 1934 Stockholm, Sweden. Died April 30, 1970 (aged 35) Los Angeles, California, U.S.

On the morning of April 30, 1970, Inger Stevens's roommate and companion Lola McNally found Stevens on the kitchen floor of their Hollywood Hills home. According to McNally, Stevens opened her eyes, lifted her head and tried to speak but was unable to utter any sound. McNally told police that she had spoken to Stevens the previous night and had seen no signs of trouble. Stevens died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. On arrival, medics removed a small bandage from her chin that revealed a small amount of fresh blood oozing from a cut that appeared to have been a few hours old. Los Angeles County coroner Dr. Thomas Noguchi attributed Stevens's death to "acute barbiturate poisoning" and the death was eventually ruled a suicide.

Not many know that this was first produced on the radio in the 40s, and that none other than Orson Welles was the cross-country driver! In an interview, the author of the short story that The Hitch-Hiker was adapted from said she much preferred Welles' version. It's occasionally played on Sirius XM's Radio Classics.

A few of us mentioned the Orson Welles radio version. It’s really good because you have to imagine it.

Lol no I meant I was kind of surprised that 3 or 4 of us mentioned the old time radio version of the show. Until the last 5 or so years I hadn’t realized how many people listened to otr.
