The talent school racket comes under scrutiny in this mystery from director Elmer Clifton (Assassin of Youth, Seven Doors to Death). It seems that a group of young women are disappearing one by one; one of them even turns up dead. The plot gets sticky when a reporter learns the women are all linked to a fine arts school owned by a shady nightclub operator. The cast includes H.B. Warner, Astrid Allwyn, and George Rosener (who co-wrote the screenplay). (BW)
