Blanche Herbert invites Iris Teleton to tea at a posh restaurant. Blanche and Iris' husband Oliver have been having an affair for some time and she now wants Iris to grant her husband a divorce. Iris flatly refuses but it appears that she too once had an affair, a fact that Blanche is obviously prepared to use to her advantage. Iris is determined not to let her husband go free and sets out to ensure that neither he nor his lover ever spend time together again. Little does she realize exactly what her husband is up to.

Hitchcock Must Have Really Despised Women
8 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another story of extortion and blackmail. The wife of a rich philanderer is approached by his present conquest and is asked to release him from their marriage vows. She is an attractive blonde (aren't they all in Hitchcock) and she has an incriminating letter. This was a marriage for money and the present wife had a few adventures of her own. Neither of the wants to budge but the newby has the goods and offers her adversary 24 hours to figure out what to do. Of course, it wouldn't be part of this series if murder wasn't a serious option. I won't rain on anyone's parade, so you'll have to see what happens. Watching these episodes fifty years after they were made shows what inferiors women were thought to be. The rich jerk seemed to hold all the cards. Of course, money has always talked and this is the foundation for his every move. Who knows what happens next and who really cares? These people are awfully hard to pull for.
