When ruthless thug and pimp Johnny Vanning takes over all the clubs in town, the girls are forced to follow Vannings rules and kick back on their tips in exchange for protection. Although she is not a hardened old hand like Gabby and Estella, Mary knows enough to sidestep Vannings amorous advances. Unfortunately the more naive Mary Lou is impressed by Vannings oily veneer of materialism and accepts invitations to entertain at the gangsters private parties. Marys naive younger sister Betty arrives from college just when Mary and her roommates are arrested as material witnesses in the murder of one of the casinos non-paying customers. Vannings corrupt lawyer frees the others but pressures Mary to commit perjury in order to discredit crusading District Attorney David Graham. Disillusioned by her sisters lifestyle. Betty consents to accompany Emmy Lou to one of Vannings private parties where the gangster ends up killing her for not submitting to the advances of one of the partys guests. Mary decides to tell the truth to the D.A., and is beaten to disfigurement by one of Vannings hoods. Even so, Mary agrees to testify - and at her bedside, all the other hostesses decide to follow her example in the coming hearing. [original by Gabe Taverney]
