GARY CROSBY ON THE TWILIGHT ZONE
Here is Bing's eldest son on THE TWILIGHT ZONE. This episode originally aired in 1964 and called "Come Wander With Me". The plot was about a singer Floyd Burney searches the backwoods for new songs and finds Mary Rachel and much more deep in the Twilight Zone.
Interesting info on the episode: As a teenager, Liza Minnelli, auditioned for the role of Mary Rachel opposite Gary Crosby. Minnelli was so nervous, producer William Froug commented: "She'll never make it." Minnelli lost out to Bonnie Beecher.
Also this was the final episode of Twilight Zone to be filmed, although two episodes filmed earlier were aired afterwards...
