Journey Into Darkness was originally telecast live and in color on the NBC anthology series Matinee Theatre. Skip Homeier plays a young man who holds down two jobs for two years. After suffering a nervous breakdown, Homeier moves himself and his family to Florida, where he takes a less taxing job. One morning, he is knocked unconscious-and when awakens, he has lost his memory and has been transported some 900 miles from home. This 60-minute drama offers a fascinating depiction of Homeier's tortured subconscious, utilizing black backdrops, cubist props and off-kilter camera angles. Peggy McKay costars as Homeier's anxious wife. Originally telecast March 6, 1958, Journey Into Darkness resurfaced in kinescope form as part of the syndicated Cameo Theatre series.
