Four guys and a girl named Iris (Karen Kadler) stage a robbery wearing skull masks. Their singing leader, Eddie Crane (Tony Travis), is discovered in a Hollywood soda shop and makes a record the next day. The next night he’s on the Rocket to Stardom TV show, and he falls for his agent’s blonde secretary, Helen (Joyce Terry) just as fast.
The moody, jealous, jive-talking Mooney (Peter Breck) ruins everything when he kills a bartender, then shows up to tell Eddie, “You’re one of us. Are you hip?” – Eddie’s star ambitions have to be sacrificed to deal with him.
Breck steals the whole show, laughing, ranting, and killing, dressed all in black.
This was the first and only directorial effort from famous voice actor Paul Frees, who also wrote the film.
