That night there is a shot and Miss Tracey's passenger disappears from her room even though the doors and windows are locked from the inside. There is an inquisition by Crowther, but it is Miss Tracey and new hostess who solve everything.

Overall, it would take a great production to make it enjoyable for me, though I found the ending to be anti-climactic.
