A wife-murderer marries a barmaid and tries again

Molly Bare instructs her lawyer to draw up a will leaving everything to her much younger husband.

Mistakenly believing that her instruction was to deprive him of his inheritance, Edward murders Molly before her lawyer can act.

Belatedly realising his mistake, Teddy heads to the seaside in search of new prey...

No Woman Could Resist His Sinister Charm!
