Raymond Burr stars as Roger Lewis, the ruthless publisher of a Confidential-style scandal magazine. For a fee, Lewis will keep certain names out of his rag. From blackmail it is one short step to murder: after killing his mistress, Lewis uses his magazine to frame the woman's husband for the crime. The husband commits suicide, thereby bringing his daughter Linda (Barbara Jackson) into the picture. Linda enlists the aid of sympathetic policeman James Webster (Robert Rockwell) to stop Lewis once and for all. For reasons unknown, the producers of Unmasked felt compelled to add a gratuitous gangster subplot to their already labyrinthine storyline.
