The Falcon and the Co-eds (1943) William Clemens, Tom Conway, Jean Brooks, Rita Corday, Crime, Mystery, Drama
Tom Lawrence, the Falcon, is called to the Bluecliff School for young ladies to look into the murder of one of its professors (and hopefully cover up the scandal such a murder will entail).
At the encouragement of her manager, a nightclub performer in New Mexico (Kiki Walker) takes a leashed leopard into the club as a publicity gimmick. But her rival, angered by the attempt to upstage, scares the animal and it bolts. In the days that follow, people are mauled and the countryside is combed for the loose creature. But Kiki and her manager begin to wonder if maybe the leopard is not responsible for the killings.
