TALES OF TOMORROW: Sneak Attack

Guest Stars:  Zachary Scott, Barbara Joyce, Theo Goetz, Royal Beal, Richard Shankland
Directed by Leslie Gorall
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

An American spy ends up a prisoner in a hospital overseas where a foreign power is coordinating a sneak attack against the United States.

A taut script and a fine performance by Scott anchor this outing, although it's a bit coincidental that the hospital where Scott is being treated is in the same building where the military control center is located.  Although stock footage is relied upon for the exposition that reveals the plot against America, it's used effectively and well-integrated into the broadcast.  This generally isn't my preferred kind of sci-fi, but can't quibble with the quality of the presentation.
