Here are both versions of "The After Hours" episode of 'The Twilight Zone'. First up, the original with Anne Francis:

And here's the remake from the 1980's incarnation of the Rod Serling classic:

I shouldn't call that a remake. I feel it's more of a continuation, with a different mannequin named Marsha. Apparently, the loss of memory as to their true identities is a common occurrence. And Marsha Cole had a different reaction to that realization than Marsha White. The second Marsha resisted, while the first Marsha resigned herself to her fate.

This is another reason why 'The Twilight Zone' is one of Toobworld's "Essentials". These episodes established the premise that mannequins are alive in the TV Universe. And we continue to see them as such in those Old Navy blipverts.

And the Hilfiger's Christmas commercial from the earlier post today.....
