A writer of BAD detective novels is in full writers' block. He pretends to be the alibi of a beautiful woman who was arrested for murder at first thinking her innocent, but as she shows more and more interesting abilities (such as knife throwing) he begins to doubt his first assessment. He is still falling for her, but more and more nervous as time passes, and there are more close calls with death on his part.

Blackwood and Nina have sex in a house that was destroyed by an explosion earlier in the film. This mistake was so notable it was mentioned in Leonard Maltin's review of the film:
"For a full appreciation of just how much contempt "Her Alibi" has for the audience, reflect for a moment on the movie's last scene, in which Blackwood and Nina are back in the snug Connecticut farmhouse for a big love scene and a fade out. The people who made this movie apparently actually forgot that they blew the house up a half-hour earlier." See more
You think she's really trying to kill you?
No!... Yes... Maybe... Of course not!... I don't know. Why do you ask?
Because if she kills you, I'm next. That's why!
