Storyline

A story about the U. S. Department of Justice and its agents that begins with a daring mail-truck robbery by a ruthless gang that flees to the western United States after the robbery. When money from the robbery shows up in a small Kansas town, the department sends agent Dick Grant to investigate, posing as a businessman. He is hindered in his assignment by a local newspaper reporter, Helen Sherwood, and when he falls in love with her, he is unable to reveal to her who he really is and why he is there.

So powerful

I can confirm that early Paramount Pictures films from the thirties, at least gangster films, were as efficient and powerful as the Warner ones of the same period. You can check with Robert Florey's or Louis King's movies, starring Anthony Quinn, Lloyd Nolan, J Carroll Naish. Short, sharp, fast paced action gangster films where you could not get bored. This one stars Fred Mac Murray and was directed by the underrated Ralph Murphy. I consider it as a very little gem from Paramount Pictures vaults. I don't know where it comes from, a TV taping off or a 16mm print found in an attic or a basement somewhere in the US...

Anyway, it's worth the watching, and also for the characterization. I won't repeat the topic already told in the plot line above, by the eternal Longhorn, who probably picked it in a library dictionary...

The gunfight scenes at the end are delightful to watch.
