Storyline

A blonde actress is murdered across from a bar. An off-duty cop has been getting pleasantly sloshed, but becomes worried about his innocence when he finds out he was seen leaving the establishment with a blonde, but doesn't remember. As he investigates, he interviews a columnist who was going with the actress, a caricaturist who drew the victim, the caricaturist's wife who works at the bar, and the caricaturist's lover, and slowly begins to put the pieces of the deadly puzzle together.

I'm not into old flicks from the 50's and even the 60's but still, I have to buy some to complete my collection. But it came clear after this one, I don't like horrors from that era but crime stories I do like. The reason is very simple, they don't use cheap effects. But still, they have to give you a special reason to watch them. This one still stands after those years due the perfect editing, what I mean is that they use single camera to make those flicks, so when you see a cut it's been taken from another take. Mostly faults are visible in expression of faces or drinks that are for example empty and suddenly they're full again. Another reason to watch it is to see sex symbol Jayne Mansfield in her screen debut. Already in some sexy outfit and as seducer. A strange life she had dying at age 34. All acting is well done, of course no nudity in it but the use of blood dripping from one's hand is impressive for that era. When one is killed due gunshots, the close up and the blood running was also well done. It's not a master piece but it surely is still enjoyable.
