As was his custom, director Andrew L. Stone filmed most of Confidence Girl away from the studio on actual locations. The title character, Mary Webb (Hillary Brooke), is in league with sharpster Roger Kingsley (Tom Conway). The pair's latest scam is to pose as a clairvoyant and a detective while trimming their unwitting victims. After making a tidy profit, however, Mary has a change of heart. But Roger knows when he's got a good thing going, and he'll do anything--anything--to keep Mary from turning herself in and spilling the beans. The huge supporting cast of Confidence Girl includes such ever-reliables as Jack Kruschen, John Gallaudet, Walter Kingsford, Tyler McVey, Paul Guilfoyle, Edmund Cobb, Roy Engel and Duke York. Andrew Stone's wife Virginia handled the editing duties.
