Bob Collins was a swinging confirmed bachelor who owned a photography studio in Hollywood, California. He vowed to find the right girl now matter “how many girls I have to date to find her.” One of Bob’s requirements in a beautiful model was that their waist size not exceed 23 inches.

Among the many girls he dated was Shirley Swanson (Joi Lansing), a beautiful blond model with marriage on her mind who armed herself with a perfume called “Bachelor’s Doom.”
