In the Twilight Zone episode The Dummy, there's a scene where "Jerry and Willie" (Robertson's character and the titular ventriloquist dummy) are performing and it looks like the actor's lips move a bit while he's doing the voice of the dummy.

What surprised me was that the act was very good! So good in fact I thought it was a voice over except for a couple of phrases where I could see lip movement.

I've searched around a bit online, but due to the popularity of the episode most results are synopses.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Robertson's script called for him to make subtle movement of the lips from time to time, while the actual dummy was voiced over. Jul 5, 2017 at 13:01
