Storyline

Peggy Rooney, Yvonne Brewster, and Marie Lewis are models at Madame Celeste's fashion house, Madame Celeste who is only the front for the business' true designer and owner, her ex-husband, Jacques Duval. There is disharmony at the fashion house, as Yvonne is trying to steal Peggy's boyfriend, Jimmy O'Brien, Madame Celeste's stock clerk and driver. This behavior is typical for Yvonne as she was the cause of Duval and Celeste's marriage breaking up. Jimmy is implicated as the culprit when Yvonne is found strangled to death, as Mac, the security guard, overheard Jimmy state that he would strangle Yvonne. In reality, Jimmy said that to Peggy in jest to appease her jealousy. Beyond all the employees at the fashion house, other people who are brought in for questioning by the police are: Mr. Davis, Yvonne's older wealthy boyfriend; and snobbish and condescending customer Jessica Van Allen and her henpecked husband Harvey Van Allen, the last two customers in the store before closing when ...

A nice Monogram programmer
12 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peggy Rooney (Weaver) is a model and Jimmy O'Brien a stock boy at the high fashion dress store, Celeste's. Given that it's a Monogram, we get right down to business and a murder of one of the fashion models (Gray) occurs very shortly into the film. Inspector O'Hara (Ryan) and his dumb cop sidekick Grogan (Robinson) come to investigate and O'Hara at first decides it must be Jimmy O'Brien. Although I'm a fan of dumb, likable cop characters (my favorites are Ed Gargan and Tom Kennedy), Robinson's portrayal leaves me cold – he's just not humorous. Two more murders ensue; Rooney helps O'Brien escape from the police (she disguises herself as O'Brien's grandmother – which, of course, fools Grogan). Now they are fugitives and so it goes until the real murderer is caught. The best part of the movie is towards the end when Rooney and O'Brien are in the dress shop trying to evade the police. Although their initial disguise as an elderly "Southern" couple bombs as they're dressed in 19th century costumes, this is the only really jarring part of the movie. What does work is when they pretend to be mannequins and Jack Norton plays a drunken (what else?) window dresser. Norton has a pretty lengthy part and does a wonderful job. Tim Ryan also does a good job and is always fun to watch. Lowery and Weaver make a very good team and are good with light comedy.
