Police detective Jim Davis (Roger Pryor) enlists the aid of good-girl Ann Powell (Anita Louise), inadvertently involved with bad-girl Peggy Davis (June MacCloy) in the investigation of an escort service that is thinly disguising such nefarious practices as fleecing drunks, blackmail and extortion. And rescues Ann from a life of crime and sin.Written by

Censors in Ireland, Australia and Trinidad banned this film upon its release. The Production Code Office in the U.S. issued cautions to Columbia about the film's "excessive drinking", revealing costumes, the "rolling" of drunks for their money, and details of blackmailing, extortion and suicide.

A very post-Code look at "escort services," albeit they're places where there's nothin' dirty goin' on, this is a brisk little B with an appealing Anita Louise helping undercover agent Roger Pryor, with an uncommonly unattractive mustache, close in on the thugs running the thing. Considering all the dialog about how good these girls are, it has a nicely tawdry atmosphere, and Don Beddoe is authentically menacing as the thug-in-chief. A couple of bad songs with bad voice doubles round it out, and at just an hour and change, it won't bore you.
