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
The horse pays 47.60 per $2 bet. He has around $200 to bet. When the horse wins, he says, "Ninety-five hundred bucks." It's actually $4760. See more »
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.

Three small-time crooks stumble upon a magical camera whose pictures foreshadow the future. Snap the shutter and the photo will show the next event to happen in that same spot. So how will these low-enders exploit their windfall.
What a marvelous cast trio. Despite the ending, there's a light comedic touch throughout, thanks mainly to dumb blonde Paula (Carson). The actress was so good at these type roles. And mustn't forget everybody's favorite curmudgeon, baldy Fred Clark, or utility actor Williams whose character is even dumber than Paula. Together, they're instant chemistry.
But please tell me where I can buy that prophetic camera the trio uses to bankrupt the racetrack. I've got big plans for it. And check out Carson's low-cut top. I expect they were pushing to a limit the dress code of the day. Also, judging from the way the camera develops its own pictures, I guess this was back in the old Polaroid days. Anyway, it's an amusingly interesting 30-minutes, though I could have done with a more imaginative ending from the one that seems a little extreme for what's gone before.
