Overview
'Revenge'
The series' premiere episode. Aircraft engineer Ralph Meeker arrives at his oceanside trailer park home to find his wife Vera Miles unconscious, the victim of a man's attack. Dazed, she cannot describe her assailant. The police have no clues. Meeker, helpless and frustrated, is anxious to take the law into his own hands. Perhaps TOO anxious...

'Breakdown'
Mr. Callew (Joseph Cotton), a coldly efficient, workaholic businessman, has disdain for men who make a show of their emotions. On a lonely stretch of road, his convertible collides with construction equipment and he is paralyzed and mistaken for dead. Can Callew contain HIS emotions long enough to save himself - or suffer a fatal "Breakdown"

'Wet Saturday'
Young Millicent Princey (Tita Purdom) just bashed in the head of an ex-lover with a croquet mallet - hardly cricket! - and her father (Sir Cedric Hardwicke), the head of this fine old household in the rainy English countryside, has decided to cover up the crime and protect the family name. The Pricey family must hang together - or surely they will hang seperately.

'Mr. Blanchard's Secret'
A daffy surburban spoof of Hitchcock's Rear Window, Mystery writer Mary Scott spies on her new neighbors, the Blanchards, and wonders why Mrs. Blanchard is nowhere to be seen. IS there really a Mrs. Blanchard? Or WAS there one - until she met her end at the hands of her husband? The possibilities are endless with an active imagination like Scott's at work.
