Case of the Lucky Legs"
DirectorWilliam D. Russell
StoryErle Stanley Gardner's 1934
The story begins at a fifties-style
beauty contest with a lineup of legs. Marjorie Cluny wins
the contest, sponsored by Frank Patton of Stellar
Productions. Her prize is a trip to Hollywood and a role
in Patton's next picture. But alas, there was "fine
print" in Marjorie's contract, and her
"career" in Hollywood lasts all of two days.
When Patton is found punctured with a woodcarving
instrument, Marjorie disappears and becomes the leading
suspect. Perry must find out which one of Marjorie's
lovers is the real culprit, and clear the "Lucky
Legs" winner of the murder charge.
