Trapped by Television ()

directed by
featuring Mary Astor, Lyle Talbot, Nat Pendleton, Joyce Compton, Thurston Hall

Back in 1936 it was assumed that, once perfected, television would be a two-way device, enabling viewers to transmit as well as receive. In Trapped by Television, such a device is developed by inventor Fred Dennis (Lyle Talbot), who needs financial backing to complete his experiments. He is financed by crooked businessman Curtis (Thurston Hall), who has his own evil plans for television. A gang of crooks get into the act by attempting to steal Dennis' invention, intending to auction it off to the highest bidder. Wielding a futuristic television camera, heroine Bobby Blake (Mary Astor) manages to foil the crooks, while Dennis moves in to finish the job. Long unavailable for TV showings, Trapped by Television is currently and happily available on the home-video market. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis
