Trivia / Night Gallery

  • Creator Backlash: Rod Serling didn't mind being blamed when things went wrong on The Twilight Zone, but it was a different matter here because "when it was bad (he) had nothing to do with it."
  • Executive Meddling: Rod Serling was often frustrated by his lack of creative control on the show compared to The Twilight Zone, with the execs insisting on simple horror stories rather than any grand ideas.
  • Retroactive Recognition: "The Academy" has a young Frank Burns in a bit part.
    • "Room with a View" features a young Diane Keaton in one of her first Hollywood roles.
    • "The Diary" has a pre-The Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner as a nurse.
    • "There Aren't Any More Mac Banes" features a pre-Star Wars Mark Hamill in a small role.
  • What Could Have Been: There were four other paintings in the gallery that were never given stories. The statues displayed around the gallery never got any stories, despite being quite creepy.
