Abstract:

Disc 1: A successful physician lives in a quiet town where no one would suspect him of any misdoings. A proud moral family is force to re-evaluate its beliefs when one of their own confesses to murder, and right and wrong are suddenly not so easy to devine. A professor has perfected revolutionary improvements in television and refuses to sell his invention, but someone wants the invention and the professor dead.

Disc 2: An eccentric playwright decides to take his fiancée's murder investigation into his own hands by locking all the suspects in a theatre for his 'special rehearsal.' District attorney Selby is probing the mystery of a corpse in a swimming pool when it becomes obvious that the dead man did not drown. While in mid-flight, the crew and passengers of a 747 are terrorized by a mad bomber and now the captain and crew are working to thwart the evildoer's plans.

Disc 3: An amorous attorney is guilt-ridden when he realizes that the lovely client he acquitted is indeed guilty of killing her husband and in order to bring her to justice, he hatches a plan that should end in his own murder. Tony Zonis wants to write the next great suspense thriller, so he decides to study the work of master crime writer Willard Hope and together they pour through newspaper stories looking for an event to write about. When Diana is found standing over a murdered actress' body, she is arrested, tried and convicted of the crime, but one juror is confident that she had nothing to do with the crime.
