Titre original : Murder at the Mardi Gras
Young actor Dan Bedell stops off in New Orleans for his first Mardi Gras. He gets a visit from gambling boss Morgan Nelson and his bodyguard who's shot from outside of the window. Morgan scrams, leaving Dan to be framed for the murder. With his girlfriend and one of her pals, Dan decides to dispose of the corpse by ditching him in the crowd, passing him off a passed out Mardi Gras drunk. Nelson returns, finds the others involved covering-up the death, and is not pleased.
