A 1953 Warner Film Production, adapted for radio. An impulsive telephone call leads to an accusation of murder. Telephone operator Nora Larkin should never have gone out with Harry Prebble, she should never have had all them drinks and she should never have gone to Harry's apartment. But what was done was done had and when Harry came toward her with that look in his eye Nora reached out for the only weapon at hand, a fire poker. 
The next day Harry Prebble is discovered dead in his apartment by his cleaning woman who has wiped away any fingerprint evidence. The only clues are a lace handkerchief and a blue gardenia broken off at the stem which are found at the scene.
