Dick York plays an amiable bank employee named Hector Poole who buys his usual morning paper with a coin that this day lands on its edge, a rare event that gives Poole the unique ability to read other peoples thoughts, both on the street and in the bank, which gets him in trouble when he believes he overhears both a fellow employee and a potential customer plot to steal and swindle the bank out of its money. What is Hector to do, and how can fellow female employee(and love interest) Miss Turner(played by June Dayton) help him before he loses his job... Amusing episode is pretty slight of course, but also appealing and whimsical, with good acting by the cast.
