Hinchcliffe, the ruthless publisher of a sleazy New York tabloid, is concerned that the ethical journalistic policies of City Editor Randall have caused a drop in circulation. He pressures the newsman to run more sensational stories including resurrecting the twenty year old Vorhees Murder Case. Although the perpetrator's actions were ultimately judged justifiable, and she has been subsequently living an exemplary life in anonymity, Hunchcliffe insists Randall revisit the story. Randall assigns Isopod, an alcoholic degenerate, to dig up anything lurid that he find. The unprincipled reporter fraudulently insinuates himself into the Vorhees' home masquerading as a minister and gets the expose he sought. Yellow journalism triumphs, and a decent woman's name gets dragged through the mud again... with tragic consequences. Written by

They don't throw you out of speakeasies... they carry you out!

This early pre-code really packs a wallop, Even today. All performances are top notch, and Robinson is his usual genius. Luckily, this film pops up on Turner Classic Movies now and then, so be sure not to miss. Ona Munson plays plays a prostitute, 8 years before she played a Madame in GONE WITH THE WIND!
