Chess in The Twilight Zone
Rod Serling was a genius. His Twilight Zone ran five seasons...from 1959 to 1964.
A couple of my favorites were The Hitchhiker and Time Enough at Last.
Correct me if I'm wrong - none of his episodes involved chess.
But I did find a short 6 minute amateur youtube post - done in the Twilight Zone style. I think that Rod would be pleased.
