Storyline

Jimmy French is a ne'er-do-well who happens to meet the shy but attractive Maude Sheridan in a diner. Maude tells him she is a secretary to Dr. Cooper, a well-known psychotherapist, and he manages to track her down and ask her out on a date. They begin seeing each other regularly and she is obviously attracted to him but one evening he drops a bomb on her: he can't keep a regular job and is heavily in debt. His solution is for Maude to lend him some of her employer's confidential files so he can find a suitable patient to blackmail. At first she refuses to help him, but desperately gives in after he has ignored her for a while. He decides to pursue the case file of M.J. Harrison, a successful real estate entrepreneur. Jimmy demands $10,000 from Harrison or else he will make public his affair with an 18 year-old girl, as confided to Dr. Cooper. The next day, the doctor has some shocking news for her about Jimmy and Mr. Harrison! Written by garykmcd
