The Outer Limits Similar in style to The Twilight Zone, though tending more toward hard science, space travel, time travel, and human evolution, it tried to examine in each show some form of the question, 'What is the nature of man?'. The Outer Limits was an anthology show in which each episode was a self-contained story, sometimes with a plot twist. In its original incarnation the show ran for two seasons from 1963 to 1965 in black-and-white. The original title was 'Please Stand By', but at the time, America was facing the Cuban Missile Crisis and the executives thought it might make people fearful of an air raid. This is why, later in the newer series when the show would cut to a commercial, the Control Voice said, "Please stand by." A tip-of-the-hat to the original series title.

Heavyweight Champion Jess Willard This photo of boxer Jess Willard was taken in Havana, Cuba in 1915. (The 6'6-1/2" Willard is the chap in the center.) When this photo was taken, Willard was about to challenge aging Jack Johnson for the title on April 5. Willard, who was considered enormous by the standards of a century ago, won the coveted crown by stopping Johnson by a knockout in the 26th round of a scheduled 45-round outdoor fight contested at a racetrack under the scorching midday Cuban heat. Men were men back then!
