Description
This Victorian melodrama is adapted from Mary Braddon's novel. Lady Audley has recently married a titled, rich old man and is secure in wealth at last. The old gent's nephew and a chap who is distraught to have found that his wife died during his absence in Australia visit. But lo! She lives! Lady Audley is the wife reported dead. Fearing her ex husband will upset the apple cart, she cracks him on the head and drops his body in the well. Thus begins a cascade of cover up crimes that continues until the nephew brings justice and rights matters to the edification of the commonweal and the satisfaction of the three estates of the realm.
