'Deliveries In The Rear' - A callous anatomy teacher(played by Cornel Wilde) who pays an unscrupulous man to provide him with bodies for class dissection will come to rue his indifference to how they are acquired when one of them hits too close to home. Chilling tale with a knockout ending.

'Stop Killing Me' - A wife(played by Geraldine Page) tries to convince a policeman(played by James Gregory) that her husband wants to kill her. Two fine actors do their best with thin material.

'Dead Weight' - A fleeing bank robber tries to smuggle himself out of the country but picks the wrong businessman to deal with... Darkly amusing tale with a visual punch line.
