A tale of obsession and jealousy set around the investigation of model Peters' murder. Boone plays a detective who cancels his vacation in order to turn his energies to Peters' case. He was in love with her before she started to attract the attention of more influential men, particularly

Reid, who acted as her agent. As it turns out Boone never got over her, his admiration growing into a strange obsession, evidenced in the film's final sequence where a scene in his apartment reveals an idolater's collection of photographs of the dead Peters. He has always blamed Reid for Peters'

success, and therefore unduly harasses the press agent into admitting to the murder. This allows the real murderer, of whom Boone is aware, to go free, but permits Boone to pursue his vengeance. The world of the film is a stark and alienating world, and none of the characters allows normal viewer

identification, each being motivated by his or her selfish desire. A highly suspenseful effort that adds confusion by unfolding through flashback. A 1942 feature, I WAKE UP SCREAMING, was made from the same novel as VICKI.
