This drama is an updated version of Ulmer's 1944 film Bluebeard. It is set in New York and follows the exploits of an eccentric Parisian painter who has come to New York to escape a controversy surrounding his work. The trouble stems when the model he has used in all his work is found floating dead in the Seine. Later, his New York model is also found dead. When a second model is also found dead, her sister impersonates a model to prove his guilt. Instead she falls in love with him and helps to clear his name. (Interestingly, in the original, he was the killer.)
