Plot Summary: Newcomer Clara Bow is thought to be a Black Widow Killer, mating with and then murdering sexual partners she meets through a computer dating service. These crimes are revealed to be the work of Ted Healy, a former obsessed lover of hers who can't stand the thought of her being with anyone else. As such, he's lined up his next target, George Francisco, currently involved in a sting operation.
The on again, off again Sikes-Cathy relationship veers off course a bit when he tries to get her to watch some Three Stooges comedy films, and she, like most human females doesn't think they are amusing at all. Complicating his life even further is Tectonese Marvin Gardens, who has taken a bonding drug and fallen in love with him, the same bonding drug that an insecure George wants Susan to ingest.
