It somehow involves a sleazy local man named Frank Sutton who appears to have some hold on her.Dolly Harshaw is a seductive, anything-goes femme fatale married to George Harshaw, the car dealer. She keeps a gun handy and likes to have sex in unusual, dangerous ways.Harry carries on with both while looking for an opportunity to rob the local bank.It ultimately is revealed that Sutton has nude photographs of Gloria, taken from a distance at a remote lakeside setting. Harry lies in wait for Sutton one night and viciously beats him.Dolly begins to see Harry as her ticket to better things. When she coaxes her husband into bed, it is only to bring George's weak heart to a fatal end.A sheriff arrests Harry, suspecting him in the bank job, but cannot prove it.
