No Place for a Lady (1943) James P. Hogan, William Gargan, Margaret Lindsay, Phyllis Brooks


Jess Arno (William Gargan), a private detective from Los Angeles, succeeds in clearing former actress Dolly Adair (Phyllis Brooks) of a murder charge and becomes a media sensation. After the trial is over, Jess rushes to phone his sweetheart, June Terry, a real estate agent at the shore. June, who is jealous of Dolly, is upset when Jess informs her that he plans to shield Dolly from the reporters by hiding her at his beach cottage. Randy Brooke (Dick Purcell), a reporter who is Jess’s rival for June’s affections, convinces June to play a practical joke on Jess. Together, they take a wax model to Jess’s cottage and stick a knife in the figure’s throat. Later that night, Jess and Dolly arrive at the cottage and are horrified to find blood stains and a body of a woman in the cellar. Hurrying to Wembley’s café nearby, they telephone Capt. Baker (Thomas E. Jackson) at police headquarters. When the officers arrive, accompanied by Randy and June, the body is missing and the dummy lies in its place. Believing that it is all a publicity hoax, the police ridicule Jess as a “front page detective.” After the police leave, June admits her involvement in placing the dummy in the cottage and offers to help Jess discover the identity of the murdered woman.
