THE OUTER LIMITS ORIGINAL METAL CONTROL PANEL PROP

Updated: November 24, 2023

A metal control panel prop used in several episodes of the classic science-fiction anthology series The Outer Limits ( ABC, 1963-1965 ). The panel houses a number of rotary switches, and three electronic meters, and is mounted to a transparent acrylic base which allows viewing of the underside of the panel to see the electrical wiring and identifying letters and numbers written in black marker.

This metal panel can be seen in Season 1 episodes "The Sixth Finger," "Second Chance, and "Bellero Shield." It is most prominently featured in the episode "Controlled Experiment," where the panel serves as the center piece prop located inside the briefcase of two aliens, played by Barry Morse of The Fugitive ( ABC, 1963-1967 ) and Carroll O'Connor of All in the Family ( CBS, 1971-1979 ), that can manipulate time so that the two aliens can study the human concept of "murder." According to Morse's autobiography, this episode was originally filmed to be a pilot for a comedy series revolving around these two alien characters but was then aired as an episode of The Outer Limits when it wasn't picked up. This is why this episode features a slightly more comedic tone than most The Outer Limits episodes. According to a prior sale of this item, it is noted that the piece was acquired from Sy Simonson. Item measures 20.25 x 14 x 2.5 inches.

Value: $1,000.
