Hollywood legend Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. hosted, produced and often starred in this top drawer British anthology series which ran from 1953-1957. Although generally filmed in England, two of the episodes in this collection were filmed in Germany with all German actors. With capable directors and fine performances, the series ran the dramatic gamut from suspense through to comedy.

DUNCE: After years abroad, a merchant seaman returns to the hometown where he was once ridiculed. His best friend has been murdered and he is determined to ferret out the killer. Stars Wolf Peterson, Gerhard Kittler; Directed by Arthur Crabtree.
