One Good One Out of Three
2 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish we could rate these separately. The first one, "Room With a View," has the lovely young Diane Keaton playing a perky nurse to a bedridden man who does his best to tease and embarrass her. She is engaged to the chauffeur who spends seemingly hours polishing a classic car, shirt removed. The old guy has a beautiful wife played by Angel Tompkins who is also enamored of the topless car jockey. The man knows that his wife is two timing him, and that leads to his game. We see this one coming from a long way.

"The Little Black Bag" stars Burgess Meredith, one of Serling's favorites. He and character actor (mostly in Westerns), Chill Wills, are a couple of winos who are together when Meredith finds a doctor's bag that has inadvertently been sent from the future. Wills wants to sell it to the pawn shop for eight bucks. Meredith, a doctor who has lost his license because of his drinking some twenty years earlier, checks out the bag and realizes that it contains incredibly advanced medical tools. He starts to cure people but never thinks about the money involved. Will wants a piece of the action, disappointed that the doctor isn't making any money on this. He is a mean spirited, short sighted alcoholic.

In "The Nature of the Enemy," a short piece by Serling, a pair of spaceships on the moon have lost their crews. One of those still alive reports back to Houston. The result of this mess is really disappointing. I guess, if you have 8 minutes to tell the story, it's a bit of a hit and run. I expected a bit more.
