Storyline

Norman Logan and William Tritt both live in the same boarding house. Tritt is a teller at a local bank and Logan is convinced the Tritt cheated him out of $200 on a deposit he made a year ago. Since that time he has been harassing Tritt in an attempt to get him to admit his error, but to no avail. Logan then hatches a plot to discredit Tritt in the eyes of his superiors at the bank. He buys a fake gun and pretends to rob the bank but by the time Tritt has raised the alarm, Logan has hidden the gun in an unused and nearly impossible to see drawer in an old table. He continues with these charades until he finally gets what he feels is his due. Written by garykmcd

Fun from beginning to end
6 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A youthful Dick York,later of "Bewitched" fame, plays a professor residing in a boarding house. One of his fellow boarders is a stuffy bank teller (Coolidge) whom the professor is convinced cheated him on a deposit some months before. The professor keeps after the teller to own up to it and return the money. The teller refuses and the professor decides to ratchet matters up a notch, which involves a toy gun and a forgotten desk drawer at the bank. Since the episode was less than a half hour in length, events are compacted, such as the initial deposit snafu, which takes place before the episode begins. So when the curtain goes up, the professor is already trying various means to get the teller to fess up. This is a relatively lighthearted story, although pulling out a toy gun in a crowded bank won't go over well in our violent modern times. York is charming and affable and the prissy Coolidge makes the perfect foil.
