The Sultry, Sullen Widow and the Million Dollar Briefcase
He is a middle aged stock broker who is fed up with the rat race. It is Friday morning and he is leaving work early for a weekend away. He packs one million dollars in negotiable bonds from the office safe into his briefcase and heads for the airport. He has a ticket for Shanghai and is planning to start a new life with his clients’ money. His airplane flies from San Francisco to Honolulu, and hopefully a few hours later another airplane will fly him from Honolulu to Shanghai.
She is a sultry, sad widow grieving over the death of her husband. From the cemetery ceremony she gets into her limousine and heads for the airport, planning to spend some time in Hawaii. A man watches her leave for the airport and he follows her, buying a ticket on the same airplane that she is taking to Hawaii.
The man following the widow sits next to the sullen, teary-eyed lady and makes her an offer that she cannot refuse. He tells her that unless she gives him half of the life insurance money from her dead husband he will tell the police that she murdered her husband.
Sitting across from them in the airplane is the man with a million dollars in his briefcase. The sultry widow who is being blackmailed asks the man with a million dollars in his briefcase if he will pretend that they know each other so that she can get away from the man who wants to blackmail her. This leads to that and while in Honolulu waiting for his airplane to Shanghai, the man who stole a million dollars will try to help the woman who murdered her husband get away from the man who wants to blackmail her.
Three people tossed together on one airplane. One is a killer, one is a thief, one is a blackmailer. This will not be a pleasant trip. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
