While on a location trip, Laura is killed in an automobile accident, and in order to save the money already invested in the film Ginsberg, aided by the film's leading-man, Wallace Morely, with whom Joan is more than a little infatuated, persuades Joan to assume the identity of the dead actress, whose death is being concealed. Since Joan is a dead-ringer for Laura, no one suspects the impersonation. Soon, Joan makes Laura a bigger star than she had ever been while living. This also causes no end of complications, including bigamy. Written by Les Adams See less
