Storyline

Jim Martin, a reporter for the London Gazette, investigates what at first appears to be a simple stolen car case, but turns out to be complicated by bank robbery and the murder of a policeman by a man named Rudolf Weinhart. Jim's girlfriend Janet Graham, also a reporter but one restricted to trivial items for children and housewives, wants to be included in the investigation. In the meantime, another reporter, Ronnie Carson, sabotages the investigation because he is in financial straits with the people Weinhart is working with. Working on the same case but often at cross purposes, Jim and Janet pursue evidence of the whereabouts of the fugitive Weinhart and a resolution of the case.

Earnest young reporter
28 September 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This minor B film or as they called them across the pond quota quickies gives James Mason his debut on the silver screen. Mason plays an earnest young reporter who sticks his nose into a story about an escaped cop killer played by Victor McLaglen's brother Clifford McLagen. Before the film is over McLaglen kills a couple more people.

One should remember that the police other than by special permission do not carry guns. That in itself makes it all the more poignant when McLaglen shoots down a traffic officer who was keeping an eye out for a car reputedly stolen by McLaglen.

In fact a lot of people got early roles here. Charlie Chaplin's co- star from City Lights Virginia Cherrill plays a sob sister reporter also looking to crack a big story. Alastair Sim plays the editor, Donald Wolfit a police inspector and Bernard Miles and Michael Wilding have some bit roles.

This is an economical film both in story telling and in budget. It's as good as any of the B films being turned out in the USA. This is not one of Mason's celebrated florid performances from later on, but he registers well in his screen debut.

Late Extra is a bit of cinematic history and a decent film to watch.
