Elderly eccentric Emmy Rice (Ruth McDevitt) is charmed by the attentions of her much-younger gentleman caller, a fellow named Gerald Musgrove (Roddy McDowall). This is quite agreeable to Musgrove, a safecracker who has hidden 100,000 dollars in stolen money in Emmy's voluminous collection of old magazines. His scheme is to persuade Emmy to name him sole beneficiary in her will, allowing him to "inherit" the magazines without arousing suspicion. Of course, the plan also requires Musgrove to murder Emmy; trouble is, there are some people in this world who simply can't be murdered.
