What About Bob?!!

A Tribute to Robert Leigh McCord III (1915-1980) and his record 67 "Twilight Zone" appearances. As you can see below, in some episodes they used him for more than one role as an extra!! In those days, it didn't matter much because the TV shows were never expected to have the longevity that they've ended up having. He appeared in over 40 percent of the episodes, although less than five of them were screen-credited. Very little is known about Mr. McCord's life. He had a son, Robert IV (1938-2008), but it is suspected that he served as both a stand-in and as a stunt double hired by Cayuga Productions. He also worked on other TV shows before and after "Twilight Zone", usually uncredited. At any rate, it is a fact that he appeared in more "Twilight Zone" episodes than any other person. Quite possibly, he was around for the filming of every episode. What a privilege.

Special thanks to Paul Giammarco and the Twilight Zone Cafe members (but Paul deserves the vast majority of the credit) and their laser-sharp eyes.
