One For The Angels

The Twilight ZoneJoe Bookman, a small-time street vendor, plies his wares – mainly toys and ties – to anyone within earshot of his sales pitch. A well-dressed man appears, and Joe guesses he’s a census taker, since the man seems to know everything about him. But this stranger has an more sinister agenda: he is Death, and he’s come to make his appointment with Joe. Joe tries to trick him, so Death simply chooses another victim. Infuriated, Joe gets ready for the pitch of a lifetime: it’s time to sell Death on the idea of taking a holiday.
