Elsie Townsend is a country towns-girl who wants to leave far away and get rich. She becomes the spoiled mistress of married local businessman Rick Chambers, but when his sickly wife Martha tells her to fear he wants to kill her to be free and yet keep her money, accepts to kill him together- which is a setup to scare Martha to dead. However Rick alone is locked away, and Elsie arranges an original alibi by slipping away from the bed of decent epilepsy-sufferer Elden Tolbert, whom she made betray his true girlfriend and arranged to pass out from alcohol so she could slip out for the murder during his seizure so he cannot deliver a fatal testimony, even if he wouldn't be willing to lie for her before moving with his family when going to Arizona University...

Don't EVER trust the blurb on the back of the box!
This movie is SO not what I expected...
The film is very slow, probably in part because these actors seem like they don't want to be there...They all seem bored, especially Hopper. One can imagine that the ONLY reason Hopper did this, is because the young female lead gets naked. This leads me to my last point. Marley Shelton, the Wendy Peppercorn of the kiddie flick "The Sandlot", plays the role as a bad girl who doesn't know how to be bad. The affair in the movie is supposedly the characters first. However, given the way that she plays out the lifeless sex scenes(3 of them), it will probably be her last affair...Since she apparently sucks at it. Also, the setup leads you to believe that you'll see skin. Um, you won't. The sex scenes are nothing that can't be shown on NYPD BLUE, after some silly grunting and moaning is muted.
