A classic murder mystery - an old opera house has become a venue for a Burlesque Vaudeville troop, led by Dixie Daisy (Barbara Stanwyck) who is bringing in large crowds with her sassy song and dance numbers. Then, the girls start getting murdered - who is the killer? You will have to watch and find out! Based on the novel, The G-String Murders by the famous stripper, Gypsy Rose Lee. Be sure notice William Talman in part one, a.k.a. Burger on Perry Mason, waving at the girls on stage.

Begins with a scene from the Burlesque show where we meet young Dixie Daisy - the new star of the bump and grind Vaudeville show. The theater used to be an opera house - but that fell on hard times and emerged as a Burlesque Show. Someone doesn't like that - and is killing the girls in the show.

Part four
Well it seems the heart grows fonder and Dixie is warming up to the comic. Well kind of, for a little while anyway. More plot development - more murders... police questioning, and intrigue!

Stephanie Bachelor as Princess Nirvena

Part five
Finally - it looks like they might get their man - but wait, Louie isn't the killer, he just doesn't want to go back to jail. Dixie loses top billing to Stephanie Bachelor as Princess Nirvena, a Russian Princess, who is really a con artist from Toledo, Ohio.

Is he the murderer? Or is it....

Part six
And of course - the murderer must be Biff, the comic. He looks too much like Bill Clinton to not be guilty - or is he? Another murder goes down while Biff is in the slammer - so he is released. But who could it be???

Part seven
The conclusion, with all its irony and romance. What happens - who is the killer? Is it one of the girls? the stage manager? Mandy? Mr. Foss? Will Biff and Dixie get back together? I'm not telling - just watch the movie and see for yourself!
