Storyline

Married couple Chester and Paula have broken into and robbed a curio shop, hoping to sell the loot for a handsome sum of money. Unfortunately, all of it turns out to be junk or fakes. All, that is, save for a mysterious camera. When they try taking a picture, it turns out to be from five minutes into the future. Soon Paula's brother Woodward joins them and the three decide to use the camera at a horse track to win big. Written by J. Rieper

Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] Object known as a camera, vintage uncertain, origin unknown. But for the greedy, the avaricious, the fleet of foot, who can run a four-minute mile so long as they're chasing a fast buck, it makes believe that it's an ally, but it isn't at all. It's a beckoning come-on for a quick walk around the block - in The Twilight Zone.

Fred Clark & Jean Carson play Chester & Paula Diedrich(How apt) who are a pair of small-time thieves whose latest haul of stolen loot proves disappointing until they discover a curio camera that seems to take pictures of events five minutes in the future, which gives them the idea of getting rich at the racetrack by seeing the winning horses. Her slow-witted brother Woodrow also shows up, but the three of them are in for a shock when they find out that the camera only gives ten pictures to a customer according to a most unethical French bellman... Amusing episode is mostly lightweight but remains fun and breezy, although has a most odd ending...
