J.R. Bradbury hires Perry Mason to represent his former secretary, Marjorie Cluny, who is somewhere in Los Angeles. As Bradbury leaves Bob Doray shows up with the same request to find Marjorie. Marjorie had won the Lucky Legs contest in Cloverdale, Utah along with an acting contract. At that time, more than one person thought that the contest organizer, Frank Patton, was a scam artist something that seems to be correct when Marjorie's contract was canceled two days after her arrival in LA. Perry and Della go to visit Patton but find him dead on the floor, stabbed to death with a wood carving knife. Worse, just as they arrived at Patton's building, a young woman went running out the front door, a woman Perry later realizes is Marjorie Cluny. They find Marjorie living with Thelma Hill who was another past "Lucky Legs" winner who has stayed in LA. Several people might have had it in for Patton but when Marjorie is charged, Perry defends her. Written by
