Director--Gilbert L. Kay
Teleplay--Helen Nielsen

Wealthy Walter Frazer, a man who once blamed his daughter-in-law Sue Ellen for his son's failures, has a change of heart when she is charged with the son's murder. Perry proves to Frazer that Sue Ellen was nothing less than a loyal wife and his son was a weak-willed gold-digger.

Fans will recognize Alan Hale of "Gilligan's Island" in a devious role and DeForest Kelley from "Star Trek" as the hen-pecked husband of a rich woman.
