Attractive but treacherous Louise Douglas convinces her husband (a bank messenger) to steal $53,000 and flee the country with her. She also convinces her paramour (a truck driver) to assault her husband and take the money so that HE can flee the country with her. Dan Mathews' suspicions are aroused by Ms. Douglas' lack of genuine concern for her unconscious husband and he launches an all-out effort to apprehend her. Aware that she is being pursued, the scheming Louise deserts the truck driver at her first opportunity and is able to steal a car from yet another would-be romantic interest in a bold attempt to elude Dan's unrelenting pursuit.

This is not about a nice woman
8 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a solid albeit unspectacular acting career Jeanne Cooper has had. I remember seeing her on several Perry Mason television shows and of course, her decades on the soap The Young and The Restless - a show that my mother never misses. Cooper is so good at playing the cold, two-timing femme fatale. In this episode she talks her husband into stealing money and her lover into knocking the husband out and taking the money. What a gal! This Louise Douglas is so cold that Mathews is suspicious and checks into her background more throughly. Knowing that Mathews is hot on their trail, Louise dumps the boyfriend and picks up another guy. Good show - mostly because of Cooper.
