'Twilight Zone' exhibit opening in creator's hometown

Posted:

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP)- Visitors to a new "Twilight Zone" exhibit opening in the creator's hometown will enter a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind - and they'll get to handle some of the original props from the television series.

An extensive Rod Serling archive is being unveiled Wednesday at the Bundy Museum of History and Art in Binghamton, where Serling grew up. The hundreds of items on display are from the collection of volunteer curator Mike Pipher, who has been collecting Serling memorabilia for 40 years.

He says visitors to the museum will be allowed to hold many of the "Twilight Zone" props, including the "cobra" phone that appeared in several episodes during the show's run on CBS from 1959 to 1964.

Other items include signed photos, movie posters, scripts, films, books and Serling letters.
