Storyline

A wealthy man hires a detective to investigate his wife's past. The detective (Franchot Tone) discovers that the wife had been a dancer and left her home town with an actor. The latter is killed before he can talk, but, with the help of a showgirl, the detective learns that the wife had used stolen papers from a girl friend to enter college after she had stolen $40,000 from the night club where she worked. The detective eventually learns that the husband had killed his wife when he discovered her past in order to avoid a scandal, and had hired the detective to try and frame him for the killing.

Trivia

Based on a magazine story by Roy Huggins, this movie provided the round-about genesis of the TV series 77 Sunset Strip (1958) (also created by Huggins). In this movie, 'Franchot Tone' plays LA detective Stuart Bailey, which is same name of detective played ten years later by 'Ephrem Zimbalist Jr.' in the 1958 movie Girl on the Run (1958), which, in turn, was spun off into the 77 Sunset Strip TV series that same year. Oddly, this movie was produced by Columbia Pictures, while subsequent movie and TV series were made by Warner Bros. See more »

Disappointing
9 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For one thing, I didn't find Franchot Tone convincing as a tough private investigator.

As the film progressed, I didn't feel that I was gaining any insight into what was going on inside the characters heads. They remained ciphers.

The plot, which is more confusing than engrossing, crawls along and never gains any momentum.

I found the background music irritating and distracting. If a film is good, why does it need lush music to induce the right mood in the viewer?
