1) From TV series "Tales from the Crypt", episode "You, Murderer" (1995). Episode "You, Murderer", was the only episode of the show that used computer graphics imagery.  This was for "resurrecting" the long deceased Humphrey Bogart, by using old films to digitally insert his face on either a stand-in, or a dummy, in scenes where the main character's face is shown in mirrors and other reflective surfaces, since the whole episode is seen through his point of view. The effects were done by Industrial Light & Magic, which also previously worked on Robert Zemeckis' Oscar winning film, Forrest Gump (1994) (which used this technique partially).

2) Well known Bogart impersonator Robert Sacchi does all the voice work.

3) This may be the first time that a TV series has given a guest star credit to an actor who has been dead for close to 40 years. 

4) First recreated dead actor was in The Crow (1994).
