Suspense – Beyond Reason

In “Beyond Reason,” Ruth Warrick stars as a woman who marries her father’s business partner…despite the terrible things that have happened to her family since his arrival.

As the episode opens, Pinkton Carr steps off a street corner in San Francisco…and is killed by a hit and run driver.

Ruth Warrick_Vangie Carr, his oldest daughter, can’t come to terms with her father’s sudden death. She also wonders about Harry Newton, the man who claims to be her father’s business partner. To her knowledge, her father never had a partner!

Who is he? When Vangie makes inquiries, she finds out that he is something of a promoter and a drifter. In fact, the day her father died was the day they became business partners. Their plan was to sell Carr’s undeveloped real estate.

Vangie doesn’t trust Harry Newton, but soon she finds him…irresistable! But so does her trampy, younger sister, Susie.

Two weeks later, Vangie and Harry are married in Vegas. When they return, Susie is upset. But the next day, Susie is dead!

Again, Vangie wonders how it could happen… Did Harry have anything to do with it?

Soon, her sister Grace arrives, and she too finds Harry a hunk of a man.

Does Vangie have any reason to worry?
