Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It's remotely possible that the title of this low-budget meller was inspired by Jean Harlow's better-known Red Headed Woman. Lured to New York by smooth-talking gangster Trent Travers (Theodore Von Eltz), carrot-topped Lynn Monith (Merna Kennedy) is soon earning oodles of money to keep Travers company as he travels from one nightspot to another. In this way, Lynn can provide an alibi for Travers whenever his henchmen are off doing his dirty work. Believe it or don't, our heroine never catches on that her sugar daddy is a notorious criminal until he bumps off a rival crook. But don't despair for Lynn; no sooner has Travers been disposed of than she finds happiness in the arms of virtuous Rob Shelton (Grant Withers). Red-Haired Alibi was the feature-film debut of Shirley Temple.
