Plot Overview

A soap opera hunk collapses and dies after a kissing scene with a fellow actor he loathes. The other actor in the scene just happens to be Perry's Goddaughter, and she's accused of giving him a fatal kiss with lipstick laced with walnut oil (the victim was allergic to walnuts and died of anaphylactic shock). Naturally, Perry goes to work on her behalf and discovers the seamy secrets of the other cast members and crew.
