In "One and One's a Lonesome," Ronald Reagan stars as a lumberyard worker who must murder his boss in order to protect his illegal gambling profits.
As the episode opens, George Bellach explains how it all started...
He had just returned from the war, when he was offered a job at a lumber yard. His boss, Henry Grover, needed a vacation and wanted him to manage the business while he was gone. George took the job and then quickly improved his salary by installing an illegal casino in the back room of the warehouse.
Meanwhile, Henry got married, and when he returned to the lumber yard with his new wife, Marie, the trouble was immediate. Marie didn't like George, but when she found out about his back room casino, her attitude changed. Soon, it was love.
Now, Marie and George want Henry out the way. They decide to murder him by tampering with the equipment while he is painting his house.
Will their plan to kill Henry in a house-painting accident succeed? Or, will they ruin the good thing they might have had?
