Storyline

Joe Rogers takes his wife to a small town called Oxport. They are there on business, though not the business they're pretending to be on. Rogers is an insurance investigator, and he wants to check up on one Mrs. Gillespie. She has had two husbands so far, and each died on the wedding trip. And each was insured with Rogers's company for $50,000. Written by J. Spurlin

Very ordinary episode. The insurance company has paid out two claims to a widow whose husbands have died shortly after the honeymoon. Foul play is suspected but cremation has done its job and now she is about to be married again. I don't know what the laws were, but an insurance company wouldn't have to issue a third life policy if they did not want to. The agent who sold the original policies is sent with his wife to do surveillance on the old gal. She is pretty good at all this, but, of course, there is a likely third victim, a nice old man who meets our agent. What do you do? There is a Hitchcock twist at the end which is fairly satisfying and pretty predictable.
