Re: Pool Hall on Randolph Street Twilight Zone

"The Pool Hall" episode may have been based on any number of Chicago pool halls from the 60's. More than likely, a pool hall such as the one featured in that episode would have been on Van Buren, not Randolph. I always thought Randolph was a bit more of the upper end of the Loop at the time, with Henrici's and the Sherman House, Bismark, etc.. Maybe the writer thought Randolph sounded more "chicago-y"
By the way, the actual episode was filmed entirely on the MGM lot in LA..
