Overview
'One More Mile to Go'
In the secluded home of Sam Jacoby (David Wayne), this henpecked husband strikes a blow in the battle of the 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 - unaware that his car's taillight has burned out, and that a very conscientious motorcycle cop is cruising the highway.

'The Perfect Crime'
Egocentric detective Charles Courtney (Vincent Price) has an unexpected late-night visitor, John Gregory (James Gregory), an attorney who unsuccessfully defended several clients who were subsequently sent to the electric chair as a result of Courtney's sleuthing. Gregory drops a bombshell: the last man convicted by Courtney (and since executed) was not guilty. Courtney, rattled by the news, is now forced to consider ways to salvage his Perfect Detective reputation.

'A Dip in the Pool'
William Bonneville (Keenan Wynn), a crass passenger aboard a luxery liner, learns of a ship's pool in which the wealthy 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 of pool...the Atlantic Ocean.

'Poison'
Harry Pope (James Donald), co-owner of a Malaysian plantation, is reading in bed when a deadly snake crawls onto his stomach and goes to sleep. Pope must not move...must not cough...must remain calm if he hopes to survive. But the one man in a position to help is a two-legged snake - his sardonic busness partner Mr. Woods (Wendell Corey) - who has an eye on Pope's business AND his girl.
