After rival reporters, jealous of Torchy's success, conspire to fake the murder of an actor in order to embarrass her, he ends up being strangled.
From Torchy's telegram, Steve is working from NYPD's 7th Precinct. Its precinct building is located in Manhattan's Lower East Side neighborhood at 19 1/2 Pitt Street.
Lieutenant Steve 'Stevie' MacBride:
Hammond's been murdered!
Torchy Blane: No? I thought he was lying in front of that fireplace to keep warm!
At the beginning of the film, Steve walks out to see the desk sergeant. Someone tries to throw confetti on him to celebrate his impending marriage to Torchy, but misses. When Steve initially talks to the desk sergeant, there is no strip of confetti on his right shoulder. Then in the next shot it appears. In subsequent shots it keeps changing position on his right shoulder until he goes to see the captain and it disappears.
