It's New Years Eve today and traditionally, also "The Twilight Zone" marathon as well! I grew up with these old sci-fi classics and must admit I love watching them again once a year. So I found Season #1, Episode #17 dated from 1960 really interesting and fun??? Titled "The Fever"... The story line is Flora and Franklin Gibbs head for Las Vegas for a two night all expenses paid vacation that Flora won in a contest. Franklin is not impressed with the whole idea, especially the casinos in which everyone just throws their money away in the slot machines! Poor fools he calls them! Even poor Flora while putting a nickel in a slot gets read the riot act by Franklin. Heading up to their room, a drunken gambler gives Franklin a dollar ( A SILVER DOLLAR!) and insist's that he play the slot machine. Franklin wins and thus begins his decent into Twilight Zone Madness!!! After a 24 hour binge on the slot machine and loosing all his money, in his crazed state he jumps out of the hotel room window ending his life and the Las Vegas vacation... Cool huh! Now to get to the point of my blog. There were real SILVER DOLLARS everywhere...Peace Dollars and Morgans Dollars... in the slots, on the card tables, being used just as if it was normal! But wait...it used to be normal!
