Full movie description "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour Behind the Locked Door":Dave Snowden elopes with wealthy Bonnie Daniels, and Mr. Spencer sees them break into the abandoned old estate where Bonnie lived until age six. Mr. Spencer informs Bonnie's mother, Mrs. Daniels, who finds Snowden struggling to open a mysterious locked door on the upper floor. Mrs. Daniels annuls the marriage, because Bonnie's true age is only 17, not 19, as Dave was told. Three weeks later, when Bonnie reaches majority, she rejoins Dave, and they consummate nuptials, but Mrs. Daniels will not release Bonnie's trust fund until she is 25.

Dave proclaims that he only married Bonnie for her money. Mrs. Daniels, hiding in the house, overhears Dave's admission, then watches as he enters the locked door, ...
Reviews of the The Alfred Hitchcock Hour Behind the Locked DoorThis plot will be reasonably familiar to anyone who ever read "Washington Square," featuring a plain heiress and a dominating parent. In this case, the parent is Gloria Swanson, reprising her role as Norma Desmond with a touch of Malificent. Swanson is a scary lady -- I once spoke with her on the phone and she was scary even in that benign conversation. What charms she may once have had that made her a silent screen star remain mysterious. She would most likely have scared away any other suitor than James MacArthur, who reminds us that he was once a handsome and viable leading man. Lynne Loring plays a "plain" girl who is no plainer than anyone else, and whose bouffant hair styles and frosted lips do nothing to further that illusion. Once the two lovers are secretly married, the plot gets rickety, involving the fact that the bride is under age and the mother makes an unlikely offer to pay off the groom by funding his education in exchange for an annulment. Further complications involve a trust fund, which only slows down the story. The most annoying plot point comes late in the tale and involves a faked suicide that is foolish beyond redemption. The titular "locked door" turns out to be a looming presence that does little to enhance the plot, but makes for a Gothic ending.
