A group of professors working on a new encyclopedia encounter a mouthy nightclub singer who is wanted by the police to help bring down her mob boss lover.
You know, I was kinda counting on Sugarpuss to tell ya the score. Trouble is, she's all right givin' out with the twists and the wisecracks, but when it comes to leveling off she gets chicken.
Joe wants to marry Sugarpuss, who knows enough to get him convicted of murder, because "a wife can't testify against her husband." In fact, the law prohibits forcing a wife to testify against her husband--ie, threatening her with prison, as can be done with other recalcitrant witnesses. A wife can indeed testify against her husband if she does it of her own free will. Further, Joe tries to force Sugarpuss into marriage with threats. A marriage performed under duress has no validity in law.
