Twilight Zone First Season

"Joey Crown, musician with an odd, intense face, whose life is a quest for impossible things like flowers in concrete or like trying to pluck a note of music out of the air and put it under glass to treasure... Joey Crown, musician with an odd, intense face, who in a moment will try to leave the Earth and discover the middle ground - the place we call the Twilight Zone."

Joey, convinced he'll never amount to anything, throws himself in front of a truck. He wakes up to find himself all alone on the street at night. Visiting several of his regular haunts, he cannot find anyone he knows. And the people that are there can't see or hear him. Failing to see his own reflection in a mirror, Joey believes he must be a ghost. Looking back on his life, Joey realizes it wasn't as bad as he thought. He meets a tall man in a white tuxedo, who explains that it is the other people that are dead, he is simply in limbo between life and death, and which way to go is his choice. Joey chooses life, and is suddenly back on the pavement, just after being hit by the truck, alive and well. That night while playing his trumpet on a rooftop, he meets Nan, a new girl in town, who asks if Joey would show her the sights. He accepts the offer.

"Joey Crown, who makes music, and who discovered something about life; that it can be rich and rewarding and full of beauty, just like the music he played, if a person would only pause to look and to listen. Joey Crown, who got his clue in the Twilight Zone."
