Painter Dave (Lon Chaney jr) is happily engaged to Heather (Jean PArker), and her father, rich businessman 'Dad' Hayden (Edward Fielding) is all for their relationship, since he sees in Dave the son he never had. Only Dave's favourite model Tanya (Acquanetta) is unhappy about the situation, because she is madly in love with him.

One day, after another painting session, Tanya accidently swaps Dave's cleansing lotion with acid, which he keeps in the same drawer, which makes Dave burn out his eyes and consequently go blind. His blindness also causes Dave to get depressive and he soon breaks off his engagement with Heather and urges her to marry Nick (George Meeker) who has long been in love with her, but to no avail. The only one who stands by his side during all of this is Tanya, who has a guilty conscienc on one hand, but on the other figures that her chances to get together with him would greatly improve due to his blindness ... but then 'Dad' Hayden offers Dave his eyes after his death ... and wouldn't you know it, only days later, 'Dad' is murdered, and when Dave is found leaning over the dead body - and by Heather, too - he becomes the prime suspect fro inspector Drury (Thomas Gomez) ... but he also gets 'Dad' Hayden's eyes due to the old man's last will.

When Tanya finds out about that however, she steals the eyes, and it's only thanks to Alan (Paul Kelly), Dave's best friend and Tanya's spurned lover, that the eyes are returned to Dave just in time for the operation ... but seemingly to no avail, the new eyes have not improved Dave's eyesight one bit, he's still blind - or is he ?

Nope, in fact he is just putting on an act to find out who has really murdered 'Dad' Hayden, but his only clue at first is a screw, which he shows to Tanya (whom he suspects among others), who seems to know something about th escrew she just won't tell - and the next day, Tanya turns up dead.

Ultimately, Dave confronts his best friend Alan with what he has found out, and really, it turns out that the screw belongs to Alan's walking stick, the blunt object with which 'Dad' Hayden was murdered ... but now Alan wants to murder Dave too - but what he doesn't know is that Dave is no longer blind and unexpectedly he puts a fight and overcomes Alan ... plus, inspector Drury and his men have already been waiting in the next room to arrest the killer - and in the end, of course, Dave gets Heather.

 

A very far-fetched murder mystery, with quite a number of plottwists that quite simply fail to convince. And the fact that the film by and large lacks tension and suspense makes this a rather tedious crime thriller to watch. Not recommended.
