The basis for this episode is 100% nuts!
4 October 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Dr. Thomas Clay is working on an absolutely insane project--a cobalt bomb that has the capacity to destroy the entire world. The idea of these government employees is that if such a bomb were built, it would make wars impossible. Of course, it also assumes no one would ever detonate the thing! Regardless, Clay is obsessed with the project--working on it day and night and completely ignoring his young wife. In fact, she's been having an affair because she's just so lonely--and wouldn't you know it, the guy she's hitting the sheets with turns out to be a Commie spy! When dumb old Dr. Clay realizes what's happening, what's he to do? Especially because it turns out that the spy isn't just sleeping with his wife but has been stealing from the crazy cobalt bomb project.

This is a fairly interesting installment of "Kraft Suspense Theatre". The whole notion of a bomb like this one seems nuts today--maybe it didn't back in the 60s! All I know is that the show was interesting and Webber played the sort of jerk you expect, as he based much of his career on playing selfish dirt-bags!

It's an interesting casting choice to have Lew Ayres play the obsessed doctor. This is because during WWII, Ayres was a conscientious objector and was a dedicated pacifist. In addition to Ayres, the show features Julia Adams, Robert Webber, Leonard Nimoy and Ted Knight.
