Girl in the Headlines (AKA The Model Girl Murder Case ) is a 1963 British detective film directed by Michael Truman and starring Ian Hendry, Ronald Fraser, Jeremy Brett and Jane Asher. It is based on the novel 'The Nose on my Face' by actor Laurence Payne. 
Inspector Birkett and Sergeant Saunders are called in to investigate the murder of a glamorous model. It becomes apparent the girl had led a chequered life and that her acquaintances included drug dealers. Jordan Barker and Hammond Barker are reluctant to help but when the police finally make an arrest, another murder occurs in a seedy Soho Jazz café. But are the two murders connected?

'Britmovie' called the film a "cleverly plotted thriller directed by ex-Ealing editor/producer Michael Truman...Hendry’s committed performance and Fraser’s underplayed support dominate the film as the two policemen on the case."
