This third entry in Columbia’s “Inspector Trent” series is cleverly (and economically) set in a movie studio. A malevolent leading lady is murdered while filming a scene, whereupon the nervous studio head calls in Inspector Trent. Since everybody on the lot despised the victim, there’s a surplus of suspects.
