One night on a lonely highway, a speeding car tosses a satchel of money, meant for somebody else, into Jane and Alan Palmer's back seat. Alan wants to turn it over to the police, but Jane, with luxury within her reach, persuades him to hang onto it "for a while." Soon, the Palmers are traced by one Danny Fuller, a sleazy character who claims the money is his. To hang onto it, Jane will need all the qualities of an ultimate femme fatale...and does she ever have them!

SInce they thought they had found $100,000 (later the amount is said to be $60,000 by Danny, the blackmailer). One tenth of one percent would be $100 and she spent closer to eight tenths of one percent. See more
