A schoolteacher and amateur sleuth suspects foul play when a fellow passenger on a sea-plane gets sick and dies.
The plane at the beginning of the film flying to Catalina is a Douglas Dolphin 114, registration NC14204. It was one of four airplanes in the Wilmington-Catalina Airlines fleet at the time. It was handed over to the Army in September 1942 and subsequently shipped to Australia. On July 29, 1943 it crashed at Rose Bay, NSW, Australia and was stripped for parts. Only 58 of all variants of the Dolphin were made.
That body was here when I came in at one o'clock this morning. Someone must have stolen it.

A shoe with a "K" carved on the heel would leave an impression with the "K" reversed. The "K" in the heel print in the movie is not reversed, showing that it's not really a heel print.
