William Gargan and Margaret Lindsay, stars of Columbia's "Ellery Queen" series, were reunited for the like-minded comedy/mystery No Place for a Lady. Gargan plays private eye Jess Arno, while Lindsay is Jess' ever-faithful, long-suffering fiancee June Terry. The plot gets under way when a valuable collection of tires (vital to the War effort of course) are stolen by a wealthy widow-who subsequently ends up murdered. Suspicion falls upon Dolly Adair (Phyllis Brooks), but Arno isn't satisfied with this and eventually ferrets out the real killer. While it's not fair to reveal the murderer, it should be noted that the cast includes such whodunit veterans as Edward Norris, Dick Purcell and Jerome Cowan.
