eter Denver (Van Heflin) is a renowned Broadway producer attending a party -- hosted by the viciously haughty and celebrated actress Lottie Marin (Ginger Rogers) and her quiet husband -- when he meets Nancy Ordway. A seemingly naïve, 20-year-old, aspiring writer, Ordway hopes to make it big in New York. She convinces a reluctant Denver to let her use his apartment to work during the day, while his wife Iris (Gene Tierney) is away. Upon returning from a trip, the Denvers find Nancy hanging dead in their bathroom. Lt. Bruce, the detective assigned to the case, soon discovers that this apparent suicide was in fact a homicide and believes that Denver, quickly suspected of having an affair with Ordway, is the murderer. Denver evades arrest and seeks clues to discover the real murderer. The case becomes cluttered when he and Lt. Bruce independently realize that Ordway's dealings in New York have not been as innocent as her superficial personality.
