Synopsis: Jerry Conway fights dishonest ex-employee Gifford Farrell for his Texas oil company. “Call me Rosalind” offers him a proxy list, but at the hotel a beauty clad in underwear and a face mud pack frames Jerry with a freshly fired gun. On the hotel bed, lawyer Perry Mason and PI Paul Drake find a woman shot dead by the same gun. Who does Giff’s ex-wife cheer for?
