Synopsis: Paul Bronson lusts after the decadent world of nightclubs and casinos. His strongest desires are reserved for the dangerously voluptuous Dinah Jackson, but this beautiful temptress is really the “property” of mob boss LeRoy Giles. When jealous LeRoy gets wind of Dinah’s cheating, he cuts off her money and kicks her out. An angry Dinah has LeRoy shot, and suspicion falls on Paul. Dinah is Paul’s only alibi – and his only hope of avoiding a long walk down death row.
