Natalie Wood plays Helen, a woman giving advice to many about things she knows nothing about. When Bob Weston, editor of a local scandal magazine, finds out that this seemingly lascivious author of «Sex and the Single Girl» might be writing about uncharted territory, he thinks its the perfect smear for his magazine. So in order to get the dirty scoop on Helen, Bob acts the part of a man seeking advice about his failing marriage. After a few visits and a suicide threat if Helen doesnt agree to have an affair with him, it seems as though editor Bob Westons conscience might be getting the best of him. Is it due to the fact that he may be falling for Helen? Will he be able to go through with his plan and write the foul article that The Chief is awaiting? And will poor, naive Helen be able to forgive his deceitfulness? These questions come to a fold at the end, but not without that action-packed car chase that is so popular with movies of this genre.
