Plot Overview

A studio head asks Stu and Kookie to intervene when a Swedish film star who's making her American debut is being harassed by her former director. Things become complicated when they discover that he is not only her director, but her husband, and even more complicated when Kookie starts to develop feelings for her. When the man is shot to death while rehearsing a scene with her, she's charged with murder, and now Stu and Kookie must prove that someone else switched the blanks in the gun for real ammunition.
