Original TFD Introduction by Dana Hersey. Music...Mystery...Murder...! That's what awaits viewers of this memorable movie from director William A. Wellman (The Public Enemy, The Ox-Bow Incident). Barbara Stanwyck stars in one of her sassiest roles as Deborah Hoople, AKA Dixie Daisy, a brassy burlesque performer who is suspected of murder. Based on The G-String Murders, a novel by the queen of burlesque, Gypsy Rose Lee, this feature earned an Oscar nomination for best music and will keep you guessing until the end! (BW)
