Viewed this film through the UCLA Film and Television Archive (though they sent me to their Paramount Lot to view since the print was being restored at the time). Since that time, this was shown at Cinecon Film Festival in 2014 in Los Angeles. This starred Claire Trevor in her usual role as a reporter trying to uncover the facts about illegal aliens being smuggled into the country and then used for slavery since their wages go to the gangsters who smuggled them in the country. Rita Hayworth is a nightclub performer who knows more about the operation than she would like, and is used to get a story for the reporters and ends up getting shot. Claire and Brian Donlevy do a great job as reporters with an easy banter and this is a very topical movie (even more so in today's climate). This is a movie that was worth saving and glad it is being shown more today.
