| Strict Programmer Film
Pamela Blake and her boyfriend Tom Neal run a detective agency that has been in some financial trouble. When Tom Neal gets an assignment out of town a well dressed fellow approaches Pamela Blake to ask her to get photos of his cheating wife for a divorce. The camera is to be hidden in a hat box. When Pamela goes to snap the photo of the cheating wife it is not a camera she is pulling the trigger on, but a gun that has been rigged inside the box. Pamela is arrested and it is up to her boyfriend Tom Neal and others to clear her name.

This is a strict and tight programmer film, running just under 45 minutes. The movie in the public domain and can be found on many VHS and DVD versions put out by various companies.

The opening of the movie is also interesting. The 4 main stars all introduce themselves and the characters they play before the opening credits begin.
