Storyline

When a movie producer is found murdered on his set, Shayne is hired by the man financing the film to assist the police in the investigation. Shayne discovers that the actresses working on the film hated the dead man because of his lecherous ways and a has-been director resented the way his role in the production was reduced to that of a voice coach.

Quotes

Collier Davis: You make the past sound like a dirty word, Howard, but I can tell you this. It was the era before the words "love, beauty and strength" became synonyms for sex... realism... violence. The flavor of your era, Mr. Howard - I want no part of it.
