Mystery In Swing (1940)


Debonair crooner Prince Ellis strides across the stage like royalty at his nightclub, where he's the focus of everyone's attention. Men envy him and women want to be with him, especially young Linda Carroll, who ignores repeated warnings to steer clear of the singer's seductive allure. Linda's father, John, strongly disapproves of Prince Ellis' unwholesome attention to his virginal daughter. When Ellis is gunned down, John is the obvious suspect, but it turns out many people wanted the star dead for their own reasons.
