Musical tale

Directed with efficiency by the first Hollywood female film maker Ida Lupino, this episode talks about the musical world. In the first scene, we see a man thrown from his balcony by two guys. We soon learn that he was a famous singer and his sister reports our private eyes that his bro did not take his own life. So that's the reason why she doesn't ask directly to the police, I guess. So, the investigation begins, and we assist to a try for Jeff to get into the music - making records - world. A shark world. He impersonates an ambitious singer and guitar player so that he can do a sort of undercover job to exactly discover by whom the young singer was assassinated. And the music record company boss is no else but Ted de Corsia...That sounds like a phony or I should say a very strange music record company, doesn' it? Because Ted de Corsia's characters have never be something else than gangsters or, more rarely, cops.

Good episode.
