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.

Little Miss Cornshucks was my adopted auntie in Chicago.
17 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, I'd like to see this movie as well, as Little Miss Cornshucks was my adopted auntie in Chicago. My earliest memories were of her living with us in Chicago's Hyde Park, in an apartment, when I was about four or five years old. The last time I saw her I was about nine years old. I have fond memories of those times, although now they seem a little foggy, and the memory of her face has faded away, but somehow I still faintly remember her hair being braided in two pigtails on either side of her head, and a broad happy smile, somehow didn't reveal her inner pain and from what I was told later from family members, of her struggle with substance abuse. I miss her dearly and just discovered that she passed away in 1999. If anyone knows where I can get this movie please let me know. My name is Desi Singh.
