This four-episode volume of shows from the golden age of TV drama presents stories from three of the best anthology series of all time: "Ronald Colman T.V". ("A String Of Beads"), "Four Star Playhouse" ("The Bomb"), and "Du Pont Theater" ("Dan Marshall's Brat," "The Boy Nobody Wanted").

A String Of Beads: Joan Robinson (Angela Lansbury), the governess of a wealthy London family is content in her simple life until expert jeweler Count Borselli takes notice of her pearl necklace.
