Skeleton, Red. Red Skeleton is a mystery writer for Crimely Publications. His boss, editor Stanley Dee, is none too happy with him, however, since his plots are not what Dee expects. So Red goes in search of a better story, along with his female assistant Deena. Red's not a traditional hero (on his first exposure to a corpse he faints) but when he has to he comes through, using his knowledge of "jui jitsu" to take down a mobster. He gets help from Deena, too, who is quick and able with a gun and who rejects his attempts at romancing her with "save it, Casanova."
