Bruce Richmond marries Lorna, niece of wealthy Adelaide Snow. Lorna must wait another year for her inheritance, so Bruce forges several checks from Adelaide's account to cover his gambling debts. When Adelaide finds out, Bruce locks her in her home's walk-in safe (which has a limited air supply), and tells Lorna that her aunt went to Connecticut to visit a friend for the weekend. Lorna accepts his explanation, but wonders who is taking care of Adelaide's cats. Written by

Bruce gets the idea to forge Adelaide's checks when she is writing one to pay a bill and asks him to mail it for her. The check number is 252 and the date is Feb 25, 1964. Later, when she's looking at the forged checks from her bank, one of them is number 250 with the date Aug 28 of the same year. For this to work out logically, the forged check should have had a number higher than 252, not lower. See more
