Description

1944, the world is at war, it's hard time in America. Peter Stenchcomb gets by as a Private Investigator when he gets the chance. 'Stench' took a bullet in the left shoulder, two years past, that ended his ten year career as a detective with the L. A. Police Department. Now he does the best he can with a weak shoulder and a thirty dollar a month disability check. Stench is hired by a sultry young woman to report on her rich husband's late night activities. It soon becomes apparent that things are not as they appear and Stench is left ensnared in a million dollar insurance fraud scheme that leaves him holding the bag and at the top of the F.B.I. suspect list. The only way to get off the hook and clear his name is to elude the Fed's long enough to track down the missing cunning dame and get her to confess to the job. She turns on all her ample charm to out fox Stench and coax him into letting her skip town with her share of the loot.
