A typically pedestrian whodunit from low-budget entrepreneur Larry Darmour, Cheating Blondes delivered a lot less than the titillating title promised. Thelma Todd played a dual role, twin sisters Anne and Elaine. When the former is caught with the dead body of her lecherous next-door neighbor (Brooks Benedict), she switches places with her look-alike twin, a burlesque dancer. Why the switch would help protect her from a murder rap is never explained, but after a bit of confusion, the real killer is made to confess and both Anne and sister Elaine settle down with their respective spouses (Milton Wallis and Earl McCarthy).
