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.

directed and acted
THE END OF Indian SUMMER, a delightful and snappy sketch about two oldie crooks of the sharp and bruised cynicism that was daddy Hitchcock's trademark, shown as a Teleplay by James Cavanagh, based on a story by Maurice Baudin Jr, is both exquisitely written and played (Steve Forrest, Gladys Cooper and the others ).
An insurances inspector has to inquire into a fishy affairone woman's two successive husbands both died leaving her to raise a good insurance for each . Now this widow is about to marry for a 3rd time. What can be done to prevent another fraud? The inspector is quite intent on rescuing the widow's new victim, a softspoken oldster .
The insurances inspector's wife is cute and pretty.
A woman takes out a large insurance policy on her husband, who dies
shortly afterwards. Everything seems above board, but the senior claims
investigator for the insurance company smells a rat. Sound familiar?
This story clearly owes a lot to Double Indemnity, though it is not as deadly serious.
Joe Rogers' reputation is on the line as he is sent to re-investigate the "femme fatale" who has buried two husbands and made $100,000 in the process.
We follow Joe on his journey of discovery. Not a journey of dark psychology, complex plot turns, or even comedy, but one that leads to a satisfying conclusion...
