Director--Jesse Hibbs

Investment broker Eric Pollard is apparently losing his mind. He's done everything from violently accusing his wife Sybil of having affairs to attempting to stick up a bank. Parole officer Roy Galen, a friend of Sybil's, gets Eric a suspended sentence based upon his obvious incompetency. This only convinces Eric that Roy is Sybil's lover. Later, Sybil is accused of mishandling $250,000; then she is murdered. When Roy is arrested for the crime, Perry, determined to find out why Eric Pollard is acting so crazy, agrees to defend the parole officer.
