Scarlet street: Homely, henpecked Chris Cross leads an honorable, if tedious, middle-class life until he falls madly in love with the dangerously seductive young Kitty.
Killer bait: A bickering couple finds a bag of money in the back seat of their car. The husband wants to turn the illicit cash in, but his money-hungry wife has a different idea -- and she'll do anything to realize it.
