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?

"When Army pilots Johnny Martin, Miles Cary and Joe Patillo undergo their discharge medical, Johnny is told he is suffering from nerve exhaustion and should not fly for at least a year. Johnny is devastated but pretends to make light of the situation. While Joe goes to California, Johnny returns with Miles to their hometown of Grantville, Iowa. There, Miles reunites with his wife Sally and young son Butch and finds work as a bank clerk, and Johnny becomes a bus driver. As the months pass, Miles and Johnny grow bored with their civilian jobs, and one day, Johnny quits in frustration. He and Miles then go to the Cary home, where the pregnant Sally prepares lunch. Miles receives a letter from Joe, who announces that he has an option on a surplus war plane and wants Johnny and Miles to join him in an air freight business. Despite her anxiety about Miles flying again, Sally realizes how unhappy he is at the bank, and soon the Carys and Johnny go to California. Johnny secures the new company's first job, and when Miles and Joe leave for New York, Sally wonders why Miles is flying instead of Johnny. Still sensitive about being grounded, Johnny lies, telling Sally that he must handle the managerial aspects of the business, then leaves to drum up publicity. When Miles and Joe return, Johnny is infuriated to learn that they have brought back a passenger, Anne Cummings, who tries to assuage Johnny's anger by assuring him that she paid for her transport. The next day, Johnny is further annoyed to learn that Miles and Joe have hired Anne as their mechanic. Johnny then tries to persuade oil tycoon J.P. Hartley to give the company a contract to carry his freight, but Hartley refuses to consider the proposition until they acquire another plane. Miles and Joe complete more flights, but at the end of the month, Anne insists that the profits be put into repairs on the aging plane. Without the partners' knowledge, Anne contracts with garage owner Harry to overhaul the plane, as she fears that Sally will be left a widow if it is not repaired. With the plane out of commission, the partners lose a lucrative contract with a growers' association, and Johnny fires Anne. Without the money to pay Harry, the partners then lose their plane to him. One night, however, they learn that Hartley has crash-landed in Arizona, and, after stealing back their plane from Harry, they rescue Hartley. The grateful businessman gives them enough money to clear their debts, although Miles continues to worry about Sally, who is due to enter the hospital soon. Needing money for Sally and another plane, Miles agrees to test a new jet for Briggs Aeronautics for a fee of $10,000, and Johnny reluctantly agrees not to tell Sally. On the day of the test, however, Sally goes into labor, and Johnny locks Miles in a phone booth and takes his place in the jet. When Anne learns about Johnny's nerve exhaustion, she begs him not to do the test dive. Johnny declares his love for Anne but asserts that the test is the only way to prove to himself that he is healthy. He then safely conducts the test flight. Soon after, Johnny and Anne visit Sally and Miles, who welcome them happily, although Butch declares that he would rather have gotten a dog than twin baby sisters. ... According to a [November 13, 1945, Hollywood reporter] news item, the Lockheed Aircraft Corp. loaned the studio 1,500 feet of 'military film of the spin tests of the Shooting Star,' a new jet, for inclusion in the picture. The sequences in which 'Johnny' tests the new plane do include actual footage of a jet"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950.
