A photographer is choked to death just outside of where a college dance is being held. The body is discovered by Lee Watson (Warren Mills), but promptly disappears, as it is being whisked from one point to another on the campus by a night watchman, who is an ex-convict. However, he is not the killer and Freddie TRimball (Freddie Stewart), Betty Rogers (Noel Neill), Dodie Rogers (June Preisser) and Lee set out to find the culprit, who managed to put a big damper on the Big Dance.

Teen Agers Musical

Don't know if this is possible to see--anywhere--and would love to hear if anyone knows where it can be accessed. I HAVE read the final shooting script--and it's a workaday Monogram mystery musical. The highlight is the screen appearance of the wonderful 40s/50s singer Little Miss Cornshucks (Mildred Jorman), who sings in a haywagon sequence. If anyone knows more, please let me know.
