A killer of young women, dubbed Bluebeard, is loose in Paris. Lucille and her friends meet Gaston Morrell, a puppeteer. He invites them to a show the next night; they go. Afterwards, he walks with Lucille; she offers to make costumes for his next show, he accepts, and feelings develop that may lead to love. She suspects he has a tragic past. Meanwhile, his leaving the show with Lucille prompts the jealousy of Renee, Gaston's sometime lover.

Who is in danger, and can Gaston be trusted?Written by
Always enjoyed the films of John Carradine and in this film you will see his great acting abilities as a painter who loves to paint beautiful women and gets a thrill out of killing them. John playing the role of Bluebeard is a natural to him with all his expressions and eyes that seem to glow like moons. The law is constantly trying to find this killer and they keep going around in circles. Bluebead meets up with a very attractive girl named Lucille, (Jean Parker) who seems to make him change his ways and he actually falls in love with her and she has no idea just what type of man he is, except that he paints a good picture. This is a great John Carradine Classic which is worth watching after his many horror films over the years of his career.
