While IMDb lists the running time of this film to be 57 minutes, the
DVD from Alpha Video is a bit less than 53. Either IMDb is mistaken or,
more likely, someone trimmed a little bit from this print somewhere

Mob boss Nick Enright (Cy Kendall) doesn't like one of the local
newspapers, as they've been running stories very critical of his shady
business ventures. He's now feeling rather cocky now that he's been
acquitted of a murder--and will do just about anything to stop the
paper. First, his goons beat up the newspaper sellers and destroy the
papers. Next, he decides to cut to the chase and kill the editor and a
lady reporter! In addition to this plot, two guys (Ray Walker and Regis
Toomey) vie for this lady reporter (Evalyn Knapp) and try to one-up
each other in order to win her. How do these two plots converge and how
does it all end? See this breezy B-movie and find out for yourself.
While I noticed a few shortcomings here and there in the film (such as
an overly broad scene involving a baking contest), this film is simple
and enjoyable. Not a great film but a decent example of a B which
managed to entertain even though it had mostly second and third-tier
stars in the lead.
