A Los Angeles socialite kills a man while home alone one night and claims he was an intruder she did not know. It seems like a clear case of self defense until the story hits the papers and people connected to the dead man come forward.
When Eve Arden tells Anne Sheridan that "Every morning you open up the paper, there's another body in a weed-covered lot," she is referring to the infamous Black Dahlia case that horrified LA earlier that year.
There you are. It may not be good, but it's strong.
The lawyer is sent to the address 2500 Santa Monica Blvd., but when he arrives, the number on the building is 7765.
