Hoping to finish his latest play in peace, writer Ricardo Souchet (Gilbert Roland) loses his train of thought when dizzy blonde reporter Rita (Mona Barrie) invades his apartment. Before long, Rita has gotten Ricardo involved in a series of murders amongst the theater folk. When the police prove ineffective, our hero is obliged to turn detective himself. Laughs are provided by Herbert Mundin as Ricardo's super-efficient butler, while menace is provided by practically everyone else in the cast. Ladies Love Danger was based on a story by 23-year-old stage actress Ilya Zorn, who may very well have intended the film as a vehicle for herself.
