As Aunt Alice, Ruth Gordon applies for the job of housekeeper in the Tucson, Arizona home of widow Claire Marrable in order to find out what happened to a missing widowed friend, Edna Tinsley. The crazed Page, left only a stamp album by her husband, takes money from her housekeepers, kills them, and buries the bodies in her garden. Alice is a widow too. So is neighbor Harriet Vaughn.

Towards the end of the movie, when Page is wearing the red wig, driving the 1960 Lincoln Continental with Gordon half-passed-out in the front seat, the interior shots show the car to be a 1961 or 1962 General Motors vehicle (you can tell by the vent window and dashboard).
