Promoter Frankie Christopher, being grilled by police in the murder of model Vicky Lynn, recalls in flashback: First meeting her as a waitress, Frankie decides to parlay her beauty into social acceptance and a lucrative career. He succeeds only too well: she's on the eve of deserting him for Hollywood...when someone kills her. Now Frankie gets the feeling that Inspector Ed Cornell is determined to pin the killing on him and only him. He's right. And the only one he can turn to for help is Jill, the victim's sister, who's been cool toward him...

Did You Know?
When Laird Cregar
went on a ride-along with L.A. police during the shoot, he was caught up in a real shooting. Cregar also reported for work shortly after an emergency appendectomy, against his doctor's orders. See more
When Vicky Lynn's dead body is on the floor, and is being examined by Frankie, Jill walks in the room and the camera begins to quickly dolly up. All of a sudden, Vicky starts to quickly roll away as if to get out of the way of the camera path. (They show the same revealing mistake in the movie's trailer.) See more

Well its no use Frankie, I dont have to make bargains with you. Ill get you eventually. If not tomorrow, next week, if not next week, next year! Times nothing in my life, it is in yours. Each minute is an eternity to man in your shoes.
Thats the wrong stare this time Cornell. They told me at headquarters that your a pretty sure thing but this time your trying to convict an innocent man!
Thats what you say. But...
