Synopsis

Obnoxious pop singer, Ray Baron, is murdered after his act has been ruined by a fellow artiste, Marlon, whose wife Janice was in love with Ray. The murderer had used cyanide in a throat spray belonging to Marlon. He is arrested. Janice tells the police Superintendent that Marlon killed Ray, but when the body of the stage door keeper is found she realises that Paul Warner, Ray's crooked manager, whom she saw searching the dressing room the previous night, must be the killer. She accuses him and is herself killed before he can be arrested.
