Description by

Riveting stories, both dramatic and whimsical, alternated on "Four Star Playhouse," one of the "gold standard" anthology series from the exciting era of early TV. Three of the show's producers, Dick Powell, Charles Boyer and David Niven, headline these outstanding episodes directed by such Hollywood stalwarts as Blake Edwards and Robert Florey.

An Operation In Money: In 1902, a meek bank teller can't afford to marry because after eight years on the job he's still making only $60 a month. The embezzlement scheme he hatches will send him down the aisle - or up the river. Starring David Niven.

Detective's Holiday: On a hunting trip, a police detective recognizes a woman wanted in connection with an unsolved liquor store robbery. Starring Dick Powell, Dick Foran.

Watch The Sunset: Believing his wife's mental illness is incurable, an executive begins a torrid love affair with his secretary. The new romance hits the rocks when new drugs effect a cure, and the no-longer-missed "Mrs." heads for home.. Starring Dick Powell, Joanne Woodward.

Stuffed Shirt: In the jungles of Malaya, a botanist catches his wife in the arms of his employee John Hudson. When the wife won't give him a divorce, he comes up with an alternate plan. Step one is to fire Hudson - with bullets! Starring Charles Boyer.
