This has all the elements of a true Hitchcock mystery. We have a man who would like to start fresh, begin a romance with a young, innocent (but rich) woman. Unfortunately for him, he has baggage up to here, most notably a sugar momma relationship with a woman writer who has him in the palm of her hand. She knows what he is and she is not going to let her go. Forward to a murder plot. He has confronted this woman and she has said she will do anything it takes to keep him on her leash. He acquiesces for the moment, but decides to take her to an ocean front property and kill her. Everything plays out nicely, but then comes the kicker. In true Hitchcock style, things never quite go the way they could have. Robert Horton is sympathetic enough for us to root for him, but his past is his past and that is going to stack the deck.
