The Cocky Gossip Columnist vs. The Elusive Killer

Tommy Tilton, played by Ralph Forbes, is a gossip columnist for a New York City newspaper, and he is out on the town tonight visiting the re-opening of a nightclub that is frequented by the Four Hundred. The Four Hundred refers to the list of the four-hundred wealthiest people in the country, and most of them are in New York.

On this night an old college buddy Ted Benson sits at his table, telling him about his new girlfriend, the daughter of a wealthy family. Ted has a problem, though, and hopefully his buddy Tommy Tilton can help him with it. Ted had an affair with the nightclub singer, which isn’t so bad, but he was dumb enough to write her many love-letters that she is now black-mailing him with.

The newspaper columnist has enough dirt on the nightclub singer that he gets her to agree to give Ted his love-letters back for free, so Ted slips backstage to get his letters. Unfortunately, the lady has changed her mind, and refuses to give Ted his letters, insisting instead that he pay her a huge sum of cash for the letters.

This leads to that, and an angry Ted grabs a knife from her dressing room table and demands the letters. Suddenly the lights go out. When gossip columnist Tommy Tilton heads backstage to find out what is taking Ted so long, he discovers the dead body of the nightclub singer, and no sign of Ted. When the police captain puts Ted in jail for the murder, our nosey reporter vows to the police that he will discover the real killer and reveal it in his newspaper column, and it won’t be his college buddy Ted. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
