Mark Hill Rod Cameron is the attorney for Emmet Devrey, a real estate developer with a past, who is being blackmailed by his former partner Sam Baggett. When Sam's unfaithful wife Marge cooks up a scheme with her used car salesman lover Jeff Calder to bilk both Devrey and her alcoholic husband, Sam is killed and Devrey is accused of the crime. Mark is then called upon to prove his employer (and father of his fiancée) innocent. Without much suspense, Double Jeopardy is enjoyable in its portrayal of money both as aphrodisiac for the illicit lovers and as the reason for their mutual double cross.
