Martha Carstairs was charged with murder twenty years earlier. Now, as her daughter Edith is about to be married to Malcolm Sims Jr., son of a wealthy industrialist, a sensationalistic radio station revives interest in the case, leading to the suicide of Martha and her husband. Opposing the station's policy is Sherry Scott, supported by his secretary Alma Ross, "two against the world." Written by

Only five years after making "Five Star Final", Warner Brothers decided to remake it and this is what came of it. A very short, fast paced film that is very entertaining in its own way. Another good performance by Humphrey Bogart and company. The plot is about a radio station that decides to boost their ratings by bringing back to the public, a 20 year old murder and what happened to the lady who committed the crime. It has dire consequences for all those involved. A very good film, but not as good as "Five Star Final", which in 1931 was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
