Storyline

Fred Garth (Don Terry) owns a printing establishment and poses as a business research expert, but actually runs several white-collar rackets operating by means of high-pressure telephone soliciting. He has sent his younger brother, Bruce Garth (Robert Paige), through law school with the intention of making him his legal watch-dog. But idealist Bruce enrolls as a Department of Justice investigator, and is detailed to track down charity and other phoney rackets. Both brothers are in love with attractive socialite Marjorie Drake (Julie Bishop as Jacqueline Wells), who is unaware of Fred's schemes and he uses her to meet other social leaders with pet charities and his salesmen sell them the program ads at five times the charity rate. Bruce and his partner Neale (Gene Morgan) trace the phone rackets to Bruce and a confrontation looms. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
