Storyline

A woman proposes to rob New York's Metropolitan Museum, using a wristwatch which accelerates time for the wearer, so their movements go undetected by anyone more than 5 feet away. The small-time crook she hires for the job doesn't care where the artworks are going or why the woman who identifies herself only as "The Collector," wants the masterpieces. Written by David Stevens

Goofs

At the end of the episode, Henry thinks to himself that he will never be able to speak to another person again. This is untrue, since, based on what the lady told him, he should be able to get close to another person and that person should be affected by the bracelet's power. See more »

Americanized, perhaps by Sir Arthur
14 March 2016 | by (Palo Alto, United States) – See all my reviews

Sir Arthur Clarke says in his Collected Stories that he worked on this script, not (as the on-screen credits and IMDb would have it) that he wrote it entirely himself, based on his short story. The Americanization is pretty heavy, and removes what subtlety there is in the original characterization. The plot hole in the Goofs section, though, is present in the original; though it's not certain that it _is_ a hole—we're not told in the original what would happen if the protagonist violated the prohibition.

One nice touch new in the screenplay is the newspaper in the opening scene.
