Tagline: Music...Mystery...Murder...!

Plot: The behind-the-scenes shenanigans of a burlesque show set the stage for this mixture of comedy, music, sex appeal, and murder. While sardonic comedian Biff Brannigan (Michael O’Shea) constantly hits on lead stripper Dixie Daisy (Barbara Stanwyck), she continually rejects his lascivious advances. She, after all, is too busy thinking about her potential stardom. Meanwhile, as the characters who populate Biff and Dixie's workplace reveal ugly competitive streaks, someone is found strangled with a G-string. Then a second victim falls prey to the mysterious killer. Biff and Dixie soon realize that they have only each other to trust in the search for the killer's identity. William Wellman's usual outstanding direction, along with lush production numbers, keeps the whole thing sprightly. The film’s music was justly nominated for an Academy Award for Best Score. The story is based on the novel THE G-STRING MURDERS by Gypsy Rose Lee.
