Summary
Through mesmerizing flashbacks, the story is told of Marian Washburn (Maureen O' Hara), a once-prominent singer who begins to lose her voice. To continue her unfulfilled dreams, she coaches Susan Caldwell (Gloria Grahame), a coarse and promiscuous singer, into the big time. But then Caldwell rebels against her mentor, and we soon learn that Caldwell has been shot. Even though Washburn confesses that she pulled the trigger, the murder and events leading up to it remain a baffling mystery and tantalizing entertainment!
