William Marshall is a renown criminal lawyer who is about to have the likes of the Whistler cross his path. After a year at school, his young daughter has returned home, with her finances drained, and in need of asking dad for more money. She meets Girard, who is in need of her dad’s expert services. What crime has he committed? The gangland crime is beneath Marshall, and he refuses to take the case. In the meantime, Jean Marshal has fallen in love with Frank Girard.
Jean is warned that Frank is just stringing her along. Is it true that he’s just using her to get to her dad, or is he the sweetest guy in the world? Annette is Frank’s old squeeze, and threatens him to stop seeing Jean. Which dame does he really love? When the prospect of marriage enters the scene, which girl will Frank decide on?
Is dad trying to bring in an old boyfriend, Charlie, as a prospect for Jean? Is a love triangle about to become a bigger mess? Mrs Marshal is on to Frank’s game, and tries to warn Jean away from the tricks of such a worldly man as Frank Girard. But will she listen? Is there hope to keep Jean from a sad end? For that matter how does she know about Frank, and what hold does he have over Mrs Marshal to make her stay quiet?
Someone is about to be murdered, and with three women gunning for Frank, all look equally suspicious. The Whistler knows the subtle hint that Marshall knows, that will exonerate the innocent.
Note: Gas rationing shows up in the form of Jean’s description on how young people are going on dates these days. Meeting halfway to save driving too far. With a slightly different cast of uncredited actors than those who kicked off the series, the only voice I can pin down is Gerald More, as the part of Frank Girard.
