After she kills him, she drives out on a country road to dispose of the body, fakes an accident, collects the money and then meets George. George changes his insurance policy to now include his new wife, but when a tragic accident, similar to the one that killed Sam, occurs, Thelma is nailed for murder.; Dora gets fed up with her husband and his freak show occupation, and falls in love with another circus performer. When Fred discovers the affair and the fact that the pair intend to put him out of the way, he comes up with a plan......; A comic book editor has endured five years worth of sweating and toiling for his publisher, and never is given the credit he believes is due him.

But the scheme backfires in an unusual way!
