Atrademark of the Tracy films is the assortment of marvelous characters: Jack Lambert as The Claw, the menacing killer with an affection for cats; Jimmy Conlin as Sightless, always looking out for Tracy; and Bernadene Hayes as “Longshot” Lillie. A fur warehouse robbery and a murdered watchman bring in Tracy to unravel the mystery. When the fur owner calls his insurance company, Honest Insurance, to collect, Tracy becomes suspicious. He traces the killer to a man with a steel hook for a hand. He then has his partner, Pat Patton (Lyle Latell) call every number in the exchange to determine who is the “boss” The Claw was trying to call. Patton finally connects and it is none other than the fur owner, trying to collect the insurance on the furs he has stolen from himself.
