Storyline

Madcap Jerri Vail is arrested for reckless driving once too often, this time while on a blind date with vacationing psychiatrist David Lamont. Jerri's uncle, a judge, pressures David into "analyzing" Jerri at his mountain lodge, with comic caretakers Joad and Martha for chaperones. Jerri tries to confound the doctor by seducing him; but the situation is complicated by payroll robbers hiding in the mountains. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>
