Enjoyable caper that wont send you to sleep. Farwell (Oscar Beregi) is a scientific and criminal genius who leads of gang of four men in a bullion robbery. His masterstroke is putting himself and the gang into suspended animation for one hundred years after the heist so as to enjoy their wealth without fearing the long arm of the law.
A very pleasing tale from Rod Serling. There's a kind of cynical and eccentric nature about the gang of crooks, a little bit like in the classic British comedy 'The Lady Killers'. This lot don't trust each other but are ultimately equally stupid. I could guess the twist before the end but not right away. Nice story development, once again in Death Valley also the filming location for 'The Lonely' and 'I Shot An Arrow In The Air'.
