The moment he is sprung from prison, smooth-talking Rusty Connors (John Cassavetes) pays a visit to Helen Krause (Ann Sothern), the dowdy widow of Rusty's late cellmate Miles Krause. It seems that Krause had hidden a huge amount of money before he was arrested, and Rusty hopes to persuade Helen to lead him to the loot. Unfortunately, Helen has no idea where the money is, so the two of them piece together the existing clues in order to share the cash once they locate it. Trouble is, Rusty can't be trusted as far as he can be thrown...and neither can Helen. The "Grand Guignol" climax of this episode is made doubly creepy by Bernard Herrmann's chillingly evocative musical score.
