Pete Murray and Noel Trevarthen are unsuccessful actors who become escorts. While Noel is waiting for one of his regulars to finish dressing, he discovers she has been murdered. Instead of calling the police, he wipes the room of his fingerprints and seeks the aid of Pete, and his employer, June Thorburn. When the police track down the agency in about eighteen seconds, they cover up for him and then, because he is such an obvious suspect, agree to lie to the police and help him investigate.
Once you accept this unlikely and unhelpful beginning, it turns into a decent enough B movie, barring the set design. Unlike most of the Danziger Brothers' productions, this is in Technicolor .... and the designer decided to take advantage of this fact by using bright colors of every sort and by giving Mr. Murray a bit of a hat fetish; although he is second billed (after Miss Thorburn), he is the goofy sidekick in the movie.
Like many of the Danziger Brother productions of the era, it's a decent enough time waster, and was clearly intended to fill out a full program of two features and selected short subjects as cheaply as possible.
