Storyline

Family that kills together seeks to stay together in style, by icing the heir of one of their victims, before she comes into her inheritance. If the heiress audits the books, she'll discover that the family has already blown her share of the estate. Her newlywed sister was backed off a cliff while having her photo snapped, so the younger sister is understandably leery of heights, but not of her very understanding new in-laws. Written by David Stevens

Richard Long, Joan Tetzel, and Otto Kruger portray Dick, Marion, and Burt Farrington, a family of lethal con-artists and swindlers who go from one unfortunate victim after another, usually involving marriage for profit followed by a most unfortunate "accident". One day, a Major Farrington(played by Leo G. Carroll) arrives to take the sister of a latest victim(and their next target) on a bird-watching expedition, but it then becomes a question of who is trying to fool who, and if one side or the other will catch on, and get away... Amusing yet sinister episode straddles the line between humor and menace with mostly good results, and has a most wry closing scene.
