Alimony Information

Alimony is a 1949 American film directed by Alfred Zeisler.


Paul Klinger learns his missing daughter Kate has gone bad, cheating men under the alias Kitty Travers.

A songwriter, Dan Barker, falls for Kitty and leaves his fiancee, Linda Waring for her. Dan doesn't know that Kitty's new friend Helen Drake and crooked lawyer Burt Crail have taught her how to seduce and abandon men, making them pay off big in alimony money.

Dan writes a song for Kitty, but she leaves him because he isn't rich enough to suit her. Heartbroken, he marries Linda on the rebound, but when the song becomes a hit, Kitty romances him again. When the song royalties dry up, Kitty dumps him a second time.

She marries a millionaire, Griswold, and works a scam with Helen and Crail to blackmail Griswold by photographing him with another woman. Griswold's onto their scheme, however. He substitutes a double, then tips off the police, who throw the three in jail.
