Description by

Co-ed Lillian Voyne (Shirley Grey) is the daughter of professional gambler and ex-con "Blackie" Atwater (Maurice Black). She lives a double life, working her way though college by day and singing for easy money in her father's sleazy nightclub at night. When her boyfriend, ace reporter Bill Bartlett (Charles Starrett), investigates the murder of frat boy Mal Jennings, Lillian emerges as the chief suspect and her hidden life as a cabaret chanteuse is threatened with scandalous exposure. As the campus killer strikes again and again, Bill is drawn deeper into secrets that lay behind the ivory towers of higher education. In his quest to save the girl he loves from the gas chamber, Bill encounters oddball chemistry professor C. Edson Hawley (Played by Edward Van Sloan of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Mummy), the pathologically jealous Wilson (Richard Catlett) and no-nonsense career secretary Hilda Lund (Jane Keckley) who may know more than anyone suspects.

Fluidly directed by Richard Thorpe on standing sets at Universal Studios and performed by a gifted cast, Chesterfield Picture's Murder on the Campus is a solid collegiate whodunit.
