Storyline

Solomon Ginsberg, the President, Vice-President and General Manager of International Pictures Corporation Incorporated, hires Joan McAllister, an unemployed stenographer, to double for his star, Laura Girard. While on a location trip, Laura is killed in an automobile accident, and in order to save the money already invested in the film Ginsberg, aided by the film's leading-man, Wallace Morely, with whom Joan is more than a little infatuated, persuades Joan to assume the identity of the dead actress, whose death is being concealed. Since Joan is a dead-ringer for Laura, no one suspects the impersonation. Soon, Joan makes Laura a bigger star than she had ever been while living. This also causes no end of complications, including bigamy. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. See more »
