I'm posting this wonderful video gem for those of you who enjoyed the story posted by Wolffshadoww titled "From One Friend To Antoher." That post told the story of the man and his dog who find themselves on the other side, about to enter what they believe to be heaven.  It's a popular e-mail that I've received over and over.  It's actually based on a 1962 Twilight Zone episode, which was based on a sanskrit tale. More information below.

This is ending of a 1962 episode of the Twilight Zone called The Hunt, starring Arthur Hunnicut as Hyder Simpson (the old man) and Jeanette Nolan as Rachel Simpson (the old woman, who is not featured in this clip).  If you click on the link above, you can watch Part Three of this episode in which the story you have shared is told.  This is absolutely my favorite T.Z. episode ever, and I am a huge fan of the show.  I know almost all of the episodes by title.  Please watch the clip and be sure to have your tissues handy!  It's an excellent piece of theater and a joy to watch.

The story itself is actually based on an ancient Sanskrit tale in the Mahabharata known as Yudhisthira's Final Test in which the character Yudhisthira refuses to enter heaven without his dog.  Because of his loyalty, he is rewarded when his dog transforms into his father, Dharma.

In one of the stars, I shall be living.
In one of them, I shall be laughing.
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you look at the sky at night.

Isn't it a great video, and wasn't Arthur Hunnicut just about as fine an actor as trod the boards?  I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
