Jealousy, Time, & Space Travel
11 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

'Room With A View' - Joseph Wiseman plays an old bedridden invalid who uses his young nurse(played by Diane Keaton) in a cunning plan to get rid of his faithless wife using jealousy as a motive. Slight but effective story.

'The Little Black Bag' - Burgess Meredith & Chill Wills play two bums who find a medical bag from the future, and efforts to use it for good by healing local people end in betrayal, murder, and tragedy. Clever story with a most ironic ending.

'The Nature Of The Enemy' - Astronauts on the moon meet with mysterious deaths. Thin segment with a ludicrous twist ending. First two segments make up for it though.
