A Game of Pool - 1989 Remake
The Twilight Zone: Season 3, Episode 20
Jesse Cardiff is a man obsessed; a true billiard sports pool hall junkie who is more than just a little tired of being compared to Fats Brown, the best pool player who had ever lived, who had died 15 years earlier. Someone in the other zone must have heard him whinning because the ghost of Fats suddenly shows up to challenge Jesse to one game of straight pool to 300 for the title of "Best Pool Player of All Time."
This is a remake of the highly popular episode from the original Twilight Zone series of the same name differing only in the ending which introduces the alternate version of the ending written for the original but never shown.
