Storyline

When Capt. Ernest Fisher learns that Milton Potter has been released from prison after serving his 15 year sentence, he tells his subordinates about this very strange case. Potter was a bookkeeper for a bank. He did his work well and was reliable but people knew very little about his private life. When it's determined that he embezzled $200,000 he is eventually sent to jail. No one can quite believe that he was really the type to steal and he never tells anyone what happened to the money. After his release, Fisher visits him and incredibly, Potter tells him he's not the type to run and returns the stolen money! Only later, aboard a cruise ship does he explain to a fellow passenger that there is method to his apparent madness. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

In Mr. Hitchcock's post-script he indicates that it is customary to announce to an audience if the show that they are watching is in color. He said that he could only assume that this is for the benefit of the color-blind, so they would know when they are missing something. The preceding play was in black and white. Color-blindness is actually a deficiency in seeing certain individual colors. The vast majority of color-blind people do not see no color or only in black and white. See more »
