Summary
Bad blonde: A scheming blonde seduces a fighter and convinces him to murder her husband, a fight manager who is promoting the young man's career.
Man bait: The married owner of a bookstore is attracted to his sexy blonde clerk. He finally gives in to temptation and makes a pass at her, but that only results in his entanglement in blackmail and murder.
Stolen face: A plastic surgeon has a brief fling with a concert pianist, who leaves him to return to her previous boyfriend. He finds a horribly scared patient and fashions her face into the image of his former lover and enters into a marriage that is disappointing.
Blackout: An American drifter in London meets a stunning blonde while on a bender at a bar. The girl tricks him into marrying her while he is in a drunken stupor. When he wakes up he finds 500 pounds in his pocket and discovers he is involved in a murder and an inheritance scam.
The gambler and the lady: A greedy but successful professional gambler wants to join the British Establishment when he falls in love with a blue-blooded lady. But first he must mend his ways and then dump his nightclub singer girl friend. She's not so easy to get rid of, and neither is his past.
