Dixon Steele is an alcoholic screenwriter who has some success but is now in the midst of a long dry spell. One of his neighbors is Laurel Gray, a would-be actress and a smart cookie. Steele is a bitter, angry man who succeeds in insulting everyone he sees while drinking at noon in his usual hangout. Dix has taken a job adapting a trashy novel for the screen--but he doesn't want to read the book. The celebrity-obsessed coat check girl at his hangout has, however, and is happy to come home with him and give him a synopsis. Abruptly woken at 5:00 AM by a police detective, Dix learns that the girl was found murdered, and he was the last person to see her alive. Laurel gives him an alibi, and they begin seeing each other. Is Dix a lovable rebel, a disillusioned, cynical know-it-all, or a cold-blooded killer? How much danger will Laurel be in if she attempts to find out?
