While travelling through Amish country in hopes of purchasing a quilt, Jessica (Angela Lansbury) is stuck there after a traffic mishap. Not surprisingly, murder soon rears its ugly head, the victim on this occasion being a taciturn Amish farmer. The suspects include the farmer's wife, the farmer's mistress, and a citified newcomer to the community. Jay Robinson, who skyrocketed to fame in the early 1950s with his portrayal of the mad Emperor Caligula in The Robe, is here seen in the less flashy role of Bishop Burkhart.
