Summary
A down on his luck screenwriter reluctantly agrees to adapt a trashy bestseller to the silver screen. Rather than read the book himself, Steele convinces a star-struck hatcheck girl, Mildred Atkinson, to accompany him home and tell him the story in her own words. Later the night, Mildred is found murdered and Steele who has a history of violent behavior becomes the prime suspect. A neighbor who is attracted to him lies to the police providing them with an alibi. Is he innocent or not?
