The Seventh Victim

Synopsis: When her older sister Jacqueline disappears, Mary Gibson is forced to leave her private school and decides to travel to New York City to look for her. A bit naive and out of her depth, she is not quite sure how to go about finding her. Eventually she meets Gregory Ward, her sister's husband and a mysterious psychiatrist, Dr. Louis Judd who claims to know of Jacqueline's whereabouts. What she doesn't realize is that her sister became involved with devil worshipers who now want to eliminate her for having revealed their existence.

Come in, please.

Here we are, Mary.

I have a most painful matter

to discuss with you, Mary.

Your sister.

Have you heard from her lately?

No, Mrs. Lowood.

She doesn't write often.

- Have you any other relatives, Mary?

- No. Jacqueline brought me up.

Somehow I never felt

I needed other relatives.

That makes it all the more difficult.

Difficult? Has anything happened

to Jacqueline?

We don't know, Mary.

We've been unable

to get in touch with your sister.

Sometimes she can be quite careless.

- Why don't you try Mrs. Redi?

- I've written repeatedly to Mrs. Redi.

She vouchsafes

no information whatsoever.

It is six months, Mary,

since your tuition has been paid.

Naturally, it's impossible for you

to stay on here as a paying pupil.

- Of course.

- Miss Gilcrist and I...

...have talked the matter over.

You can stay on here and work...

...with the younger children

as sort of an assistant teacher.

But, Mrs. Lowood,

I can't just stay on here...

...without knowing what's happened

to my sister.

Maybe if I went to New York,

if I saw Mrs. Redi myself...

I doubt if you'll get anything

out of that woman.

But if you'd like to try...

...l'll advance the money

to make the trip to New York.

Of course, my dear,

if you don't find your sister... can always come back here.

Thank you.


Don't come back.

No matter if you never find your sister.

No matter what happens to you.

Don't come back.

My parents died when I was a pupil.

I left as you are leaving.

But I didn't have courage.

One must have courage

to really live in the world.

I came back.


Agnes, John Quincy Adams

did not follow John Adams as president.

Build thee more stately mansions,

O my soul

As the swift seasons roll!

Leave thy low-vaulted past!

Let each new temple,

Nobler than the last

Shut thee from heaven

With a dome more vast

Till thou at length art free

That's enough.

It seems all right, Joseph.

You see, we do keep up the quality

of La Sagesse products... spite of Jacqueline's absence.

But you must know someone

who has seen or heard of my sister.

I'm afraid not.

Your sister had many friends,

but they were not my friends.

I was only the manager of her plant.

Mrs. Redi, there's one thing.

With Jacqueline gone,

how do you carry on the business?

What do you do with the receipts?

How do you sign the checks?

Why, Mary, I'm amazed.

Didn't Jacqueline tell you?

She sold the business to me

at least eight months ago.

- It's my business now.

- I didn't know that.

Yes, and I must say

I've done quite well with it.

Perhaps even better than Jacqueline.

There's nothing you can think of?

Old letters?

Anything that might give me some hint

as to where I might find Jacqueline?

Leave your address.

If I find anything, I'll be in touch.

- I'm stopping at the Chatsworth.

- Thank you, my dear.

Why, Mary.

- Hello, Frances.

- How are you, honey?

- How's Miss Jacqueline?

- I don't know.

That's why I came to see Mrs. Redi.

I'm trying to find her.

You mean she's gone

and you don't know where she is?

Come here a minute.

I don't get this.

Miss Jacqueline's so crazy

about you.

She always talked about you,

and she had your picture in her office.

I know.

For the first time

I'm beginning to feel frightened.

I almost feel as if

I'd never known my sister.

Nothing's happened to her.

It's just I can't understand

her not keeping in touch with you.

- I can't understand it at all.

- Well, don't worry about it.

I saw Miss Jacqueline myself
