Plot summary[edit]

Virginia Mason (Anne Baxter) and George (Macdonald Carey), husband and wife from Mellford, Illinois, are passengers on an airliner for a second honeymoon in Hawaii. When the plane develops serious engine trouble, it looks like the end for everyone on board. Certain that he's facing an imminent demise, George confesses to Virginia that he's had an affair with her best friend Jane Richards (Catherine McLeod). Virginia mulls over several potential revenges in her mind, casting herself as various famous women of history. The plane lands safely, at which time Virginia learns that the "affair" was nothing more than a discreet flirtation.[1]
