The Hitchhiker
(Twilight Zone episode - 1960)


Originally broadcast on January 22,1960, Inger portrays Nan Adams, a young woman driving on a cross-country trip who inexplicably and repeatedley encounters a man asking for a ride, turning up at every gas or reststop she makes. Inger's portrayal of a woman slowly being overcome with fear and desperation makes this an iconic episode of Rod Serling's classic TV series, often being considered among the most memorable episodes. The "Hitchhiker" himself was played by character actor Leonard Strong, who eventually gained fame as "The Claw" in Get Smart a few years later.
