Did You Know?

Goofs

Near the end of the tale, the doctor states the date as the 21st century, when the date was from the 25th century. Doubly curious because earlier his wife describes the date correctly as being from the 25th century. See more »

Quotes

Angie Fulbright: There are ways of making money - lots of other ways... if you were only smart.
Dr. Arthur Fulbright: I won't touch that kind of money!
Angie Fulbright: All right, all right! Starve! Stay in your cave, you old, weak, spineless failure, not good for anything!

Like many great tales of the supernatural, it's a critique of human nature.
16 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode of "Tales of Tomorrow" is about a nice but down-and-out doctor. It seems he's done something to ruin his reputation and the show is about his redemption. When he is at his lowest, he obtains a magical sort of medical bag--a bag from the future! Using it, he saves people from all sorts of fatal illnesses! As time passes, he's become successful but never loses track of his humanity. Unfortunately, this is NOT the case with his wife. She is an evil shrewish wretch whose only concern is money and power. She sees the bag as a way to wealth and she will allow NOTHING to stop this pursuit. Where will it all end? See this show.

While the plot has been replicated in later shows (such as in "Night Gallery"), this is the first and probably the best. It's highly enjoyable and original--and well worth your time. And, like the best shows in this genre, it says a lot about the dark side of human nature. See this one! And, if you want, download it for free from the IMDb links to "Tales of Tomorrow".
