After a Broadway producer makes a pass at his woman, Fortune takes revenge
Though a legendary Broadway mogul, Ricardo Vega's true talents lie in the infamous art of trapping aspiring young actresses on his casting couch. When he takes a liking to Marty Adair, a chorus girl recently cast in her first big part, he tells her that her job is on the line if she doesn't sleep with him. Where some women might crumple, Marty turns to her boyfriend, one-armed PI Dan Fortune.
At Vega's office, the producer's goons reward Fortune's chivalry with a bum's rush and a light beating. The next day, nursing his wounds over the morning paper, he reads that one of Vega's discarded starlets has disappeared. If Vega has anything to do with it, Fortune will make him pay. Not even Broadway royalty gets away with mistreating Marty Adair.
