While fighting with girlfriend Bea Harper (Geraldine Brooks), Ted Darby (Shepperd Strudwick) takes a spill that leads to his death. Desperate to keep her daughter out of jail, Bea's mother, Lucia (Joan Bennett), disposes of the body.

Yet when Martin and Lucia grow increasingly close, the scheme starts to splinter.
Starring: Joan Bennett, Shepperd Strudwick, Geraldine Brooks
Viewer Quote: "James Mason is always excellent in sinister roles, and his performance here is one of his best. But who wouldn't fall in love with beautiful Joan Bennett, giving the performance of her career as the desperate mother who's commonplace life is suddenly turned upside down by crime and blackmail. Highly recommended for the outstanding direction and two great stars in peak form."
