Dip in the pool.
One more mile to go.
Alfred Hitchcock presents (Television program).
Perfect crime: "Egocentric detective Vincent Price has an unexpected late-night vistor, Jame Gregory, an attorney who unsuccessfully defended several clients who were subsequently sent to the electric chair as a result of Price's sleuthing. Gregory drops a bombshell: the last man convicted by Price (and since executed) was not guilty. Price rattled by the news, is now forced to consider ways to salvage his perfect detective reputation"--Container.
Dip in the pool: "Keenan Wynn, a crass passenger aboard a luxury liner, learns of ship's pool in which wealth passengers wager on the number of miles the ship will travel in the next 24 hours. He takes the plunge, betting low...and then decides to increase his chances by taking a different kind of plunge into a different kind pool...the Atlantic Ocean"--Container.
One more mile to go: "In the secluded home of Sam Jacoby (David Wayne), this henpecked husband strikes a blow in the battle of sexes...with a fireplace poker. Wifey has now been silenced, but Sam is left with the corpus delicti. Sam sets out to dispose of the evidence--unware that his car's tailight has burned out, and that very conscientious motorcycle cop is cruising the highway"--Container.
