~ CBS Radio Mystery Theater, The Lady Was a Tiger, Act 3, Scenes 1-4 — True Colors ~
Is Carol a femme fatale, or is she actually Larry’s best friend? Is she the rattler that only pretends to give him fair warning, or is she really on his side? Is she with the Americans or the Russians? It’s time for Carol to show her true colors.
Nothing but the truth
Dr. Rozanski is determined to get the truth out of Larry about where the note is hidden.

When circumstances spin out of control, the Russian spies decide to give up on the note and silence Larry instead. It’s time for Carol to show her true colors — to reveal which side she is really on.
