Judge Lawton Gray is running for Congress, but his wife Muriel is an alcoholic. Muriel's personal assistant, Eleanor Brooks, spies the judge kissing Sparta Town Councilwoman Roslyn Douglas and tells Muriel about it. When Muriel confronts her husband with this information, he sets up a scheme that thickens the plot into a witches' brew.

The pickup has a flat tire and when the man gets out and looks at his watch it is about 10:50 PM. He then walks at a regular pace on the street. The judge's clock strikes 1 AM just before the man shows up. Later, an officer says the truck was found 10 miles away from the Judge's house. To cover 10 miles in 100 minutes (1.66 hours) means he would have to walk at about 8.5 MPH. An average walking speed for an older person such as the one shown is around 3 MPH, and "racewalkers" can only do between 8 and 9 MPH, so the man could not have covered that distance in the amount of time available.
