Synopsis
A wealthy man dies leaving his money to the butler, housekeeper, wife, brother and nephew. The wife and the estate lawyer cook up a plot to get all the money. The lawyer shoots both the butler and housekeeper and plans to kill the brother and nephew and pin the crime on the dead butler and housekeeper. He then plans to tell police that he shot the butler and housekeeper after he came upon them murdering the relatives. Cap and Bucky bust up the plot, and since neither the brother or nephew want the money now and Cap won't accept it as a reward, the money is donated to the war effort.
