Plot summary[edit]

Government agents William Dennis (Terry) and Joan Barclay (Wells) are undercover, working to solve the disappearances of girls working as "taxi-dancers" of the many dance halls operated by Jack Miranda (Arthur Loft) and his henchman Nifty (Paul Fix). Dennis sets himself up as a theatrical booking agent, and shows his power by the opening and closing of Miranda's Paradise Club at will.
