***SPOILERS*** Having it out with his old lady Martha , Doreen Lang,on her beef stew having too much salt in it nutty professor Henry J. Fallon, Hume Cronyn, stormed out of the house and made a B-line to the nearest ginmill to get stoned and forget his troubles. While under the influence of booze and wine the hysterical professor went to the high school where he teaches chemistry and put together a concoction of a bottle of High Point Whiskey and 8 ounces of nitroglycerin that has the strength to obliterate an entire city block. The trouble is when Prof. Fallon came to he forgot where he put It!

It's now a matter of time for the police and bomb squad to find the deadly concoction and defuse it before it goes off and ends up blowing the entire cast of "Naked City" to kingdom come. And all this depends on Prof. Fallon's memory in remembering just where he put it and then having the bomb squad headed by Tom Keary, J.D Cannon, and Jack Lubin, Terry Carter, dressed in anti-explosive and fire proof suits disarm or explode it in their steel reinforced bomb police truck.

***SPOILERS*** Little did Prof. Fallon realize that a family dispute would lead to all this but it was the booze that he guzzled down that distorted his view of reality. Now in finding the beady brew, in his high school locker, he's more then determined to defuse it himself even if it ends up blowing him into a million pieces. It's bomb squad member Keary who walks Prof. Fallon through the dangers of getting the bomb into the bomb truck before it explodes and takes them, Fallon & Kerny, both out. With the helpless NYPD and some hundred spectators on the scene powerless to do anything but watch!
