An alien race is dying, but Earth can save them - by depositing saved time in their bank.

She hates to waste a minute anyway, but her husband enjoys his time so much, he's not eligible to be a depositor. Written by David Stevens

Original...but still not very good.
3 September 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A woman (Sylvia Sidney) has been approached by a very special and elite bank--one in which you can bank time for use later. It's run by aliens but she asks few questions and agrees to its terms, as she's worried about time running out on her too soon.

I like watching the old episodes of "Tales of Tomorrow" but must admit that this isn't a very good one. Despite having a very original plot, there are just too many things wrong with this one to recommend it. The biggest one is that Sidney simply was bad. I normally don't point out specific actors for scorn but Miss Sidney has died and won't be hurt when I say she was bad. I think this show might have been performed live (many were back in the early 50s) and she kept flubbing her lines. It really takes the viewer out of the experience and reminds you it's just a TV show. Second, they plot, while highly original, also didn't make a lot of sense or made for interesting viewing. Passable entertainment and that's all.
