Night Gallery

In 1969, five years after The Twilight Zone, creator-host Rod Serling introduced TV audiences to Night Gallery. Set in a mysterious museum, Serling prefaced each week's spine-chilling tale by unveiling a dark, sometimes bizarre, painting.
The portrait to the left was painted by Jaroslav Gebr for one of the pilot episode stories called "Eyes," about a rich blind woman who goes to extreme lengths in order to see. Interestingly, this segment was Steven Spielberg's first industry job. Serling's intro to "Eyes" follows...
"Objet d'art number two: a portrait. Its subject, Miss Claudia Menlo, a blind queen who reigns in a carpeted penthouse on Fifth Avenue. An imperious, predatory dowager who will soon find a darkness blacker than blindness. This is her story." (play audio clip(1))
