How will "Det. Frank Balligner" prove a French lady's suicide was a murder? That's the story here. We see in the opening scene a mystery murderer plugging the dame in her apartment.
Now "Ballinger" (Lee Marvin) and his police buddies have to find enough evidence to first get some suspects. and then prove if anyone of them was behind this. This was a good example back in the '50s how the cops did behind-the-scenes investigative work. It's not a fascinating episode, but it did hold my interest.
It's also another example of "you reap what you show," even if you are a rich family like the "Bradens."
