Twice Struck

Bleak entry about the star-crossed fates of two men in a bank: the first is a bank employee named George Chambers(played by Frank Maxwell) whose wife Ellen(played by Roberta Haynes) has had a psychic vision of his death that day, but George must go to his job for urgent reasons... the second man named Alex Peters(played by Ralph Nelson) has just received a terminal diagnosis and is determined to provide for his crippled daughter, but cannot get insurance or a trust fund, so instead takes a most unfortunate course of action that day at the bank... Host John Newland provides no answers for the sad outcome, but then sometimes bad things just happen...
