The residents of a small Vermont town are faced with the appearance of one Harry Worp. The trouble with Harry is that he's dead. Four people in particular are concerned with what to do with him: Captain Albert Wiles (Edmund Gwenn), who thinks he shot Harry on accident while hunting; Jennifer Rogers (ShirleyMacLaine, in her film debut), who was his wife; Ivy Gravely (Mildred Natwick), who hit Harry in self-defense after he attacked her; and Sam Marlowe (John Forsythe), who never actually met Harry, but is interested in Jennifer. The rest of the movie is spent trying to figure out why he's dead, and more importantly, what to do with the body.

** Subverted with the opening closet. The ScareChord that plays whenever it opens makes you think that its going to have an important part to play in the plot. [[spoiler: When it finally does open unexpectedly in front of the police, Harry's body isn't in it. It's in the tub instead.]]
