In this madcap mystery adventure, Chick Chandler stars as Jimmy McMillan, an architect who designs an exclusive combination mall/apartment building that has seven entrances. When a robbery and murder occurs there, every tenant becomes suspect due to the fact that everyone had a convenient escape route through one of the seven exits. Jimmy volunteers to unravel the mystery and uncover the identity of the killer—in part to cast the suspicion of guilt away from him. In order to reconstruct the crime, the architect wanders through the hallways and rooms of his creation, hoping to stumble across enough clues to point him in the direction of the truth.

Get ready to take a trip down memory lane—back to the days of jukeboxes, rock 'n roll, hang-out hamburger joints, and of course—rip-roarin' hot rods. Teenage terrors are ripping up the streets of a quaint suburban town much to the dismay of the local police department. One deputy hopes to provide a safe venue for street racing by petitioning the town to build a drag strip but runs into plenty of obstacles standing in his way, including several prejudiced parents. Among the young hot-rodders included in Hot Rod Girl are: Lori Nelson as Lisa, John Smith as Jeff, Chuck Connors as Ben, Frank Gorshin as Flat Top, and Roxanne Arlen as L.P.

Meelah (Gale Sherwood) is a white woman who has been raised by a primitive African jungle tribe and is hailed as a goddess among the natives. One day her world is suddenly turned upside-down when two transport pilots, Steve (Leif Erickson) and Hoppy (Frank Jenks), working for diamond mine mogul Mark Harper (Douglass Dumbrille), crash-land their plane in Meelah's territory. When the men cross paths with the "blonde savage" and discover that she's the daughter of Harper's murdered partner, they plot to bring their villainous employer to justice and Meelah to civilization.

Prizefighter Johnny Bradfield (John Garfield) is framed for murdering a reporter who discovered that Johnny's squeaky-clean persona is a façade. Then when it appears that Johnny has been killed in a fiery auto accident, the police close the case, and a ranching family in Arizona takes Johnny in. When money becomes scarce, it looks as though the family will be forced to sell the ranch, so Johnny enters a fight to obtain prize money to help save it. But when a police officer recognizes a picture of Johnny in the paper, he must choose between saving his flagging career by arresting the innocent boxer, or letting the case remain closed, allowing young Johnny to help the kind family save their home.
