Having been away for four months, Hildy Johnson walks into the offices of the New York City based The Morning Post, where she is a star reporter, to tell her boss, editor Walter Burns, that she is quitting. The reason for her absence was among other things to get a Reno divorce, from, of all people, Walter, who admits he was a bad husband. Hildy divorced Walter largely because she wanted more of a home life, whereas Walter saw her more as a driven hard-boiled reporter than subservient homemaker. Hildy has also come to tell Walter that she is taking the afternoon train to Albany, where she will be getting married tomorrow to staid straight-laced insurance agent, Bruce Baldwin, with whose mother they will live, at least for the first year. Walter doesn't want to lose Hildy, either as a reporter or a wife, and if he does, doesn't believe Bruce is worthy of her. Walter does whatever he can at least to delay Hildy and Bruce's trip, long enough to persuade Hildy to stay for good. His plan includes doing whatever he can to place Bruce in a bad light, while dangling a big story under her nose, namely covering what the newspaper believes is the unfair imminent execution of convicted cop killer, Earl Williams. Hildy doesn't trust Walter in dealing with her and Bruce in an above board manner, but the lure of what potentially may become the biggest story in years, which includes true love, a bumbling sheriff and a corrupt mayor, the latter's actions largely in light of an upcoming election, may prove to be too much for Hildy to resist, especially if it ends up being an exclusive. Regardless of the story outcome, Hildy will have to decide if the thrill of the chase was worth the anguish on her personal life.

Unable to solve his last case, famed private detective Lance O'Leary is showing signs of being on the verge of a nervous breakdown. As such, he is admitted to the private Thatcher Institute to recuperate. Beyond the inability to rest and relax as he is ordered, O'Leary doesn't totally mind being there as it allows him to spend time with the head nurse, Sara Keate, with who he is in an on-again/off-again relationship, those switches largely pressed by her. Besides O'Leary's butler Seymour Bentley being a known ex-con, there is much going on at the Institute of intrigue: the only other patient is is elderly and wealthy Institute benefactor Frank Warren, who head doctor Arthur Lethany convinced to go through a $100,000 medical radium treatment for his ailment; Dr. Balman, who once had money but is now broke, is incensed by the treatment as he feels it is both unnecessary for Warren and would better serve a multitude of other patients who would truly benefit from it; Lethany's wife, Carol Lethany, is in a clandestine relationship with the Institute's poor intern, Dr. Fred Harker, who she would leave her husband for if Harker only had money; Lethany himself lusts after another one of the nurses, Maida Day; Warren's nephew, Jim Warren, is deep in debt, something that his uncle refuses to help him pay; and Jim and Maida themselves are in a relationship. Within these situations, two of these people are murdered at the Institute and the $100,000 worth of radium stolen, all the other players who would have opportunity and/or motive to kill one or both victims. Thus, O'Leary changes from being patient back to private investigator, and despite she a a suspect herself, Sara is by his side in the investigation. Things are only complicated as O'Leary and the police detective in charge of the case, Inspector Foley, have a friendly rivalry. The case takes a turn when some discover that the Institute's nightwatchman, Higgins, actually saw the murder.
