The Slice

49 years ago on “The Twilight Zone”

In an episode called “Printer's Devil,” a journalistic jack-of-all-trades played by Burgess Meredith arrives in town just in time to save a struggling newspaper. But at what price?

This episode, first airing on Feb. 28, 1963, is notable for scenes in which the new arrival supposedly uses a linotype machine, the sight of his twisted cigars and him referring to a shot of booze as “a touch of the creature.”
