A special opening with a word from Bing Crosby, and his sponsor. Hey, I suppose the unhealthy affects of smoking those Chesterfields might be expected to be counteracted if you also used Mr Keen’s healthy products of Anacin. Too bad it doesn’t work that way.
Speaking of healthy, a young gal is the envy of all the other young girls in her neighborhood as she meets a heartthrob crooner and gets his autograph. Moments later, the starry eyed girl is talking on the phone when gunshots break in. Her crooner has been murdered. Amy, the young wife of the famous crooner arrives in Mr Keen’s office the next day, just as he is reading about the case. The weeping bride assures Mr Keen that she may seem to be the likely suspect over jealousy of all his teeny bopper fans, but she didn’t have anything to do with the killing. Who did it then? She fills in details to Mr Keen about who found the body, and other working relationships and situations that might boil over into murder.
It’s off to the Grande Theater to talk with show biz ttypes involved with Don Taylor, the dead singer. Mr Keen has reason to doubt that Amy was entirely truthful in her assurances of being free of jealousy. Who can be believed? Shouts and threats ar heard, and though the drama is broken up by Mr Keen and Mike Clancey, the list of suspects and motives keep growing.
Commercial time for Anacin, you know, to keep the balance of those cigarettes that were pitched at the start of the show. Or something. (cough, cough.)
Mildred Sellers is a deranged fan, but are there still more secrets to dig up? Questioning continues as Mr Keen tries to figure whether Amy was telling lies, or if Janice the young woman at the start of the story, and the one who found the body might be the guilty party. What about the studio producer, and father of Janice?
Dig up the dirt and learn all the plot twists as you listen in and get the facts firsthand. Mr Keen holds the key to the murder, and is about to expose the truth as he gathers the suspects together, and blows the lid off the case.
