Jimmie, the Brownsville Bugle's office boy, and Millie, niece of editor Henshaw, turn amateur detectives in order to help a friend who is accused of murder. With more zeal than direction, they pick the owner of a gas station as the killer, and when he turns out to be innocent, Henshaw fires Jimmie. The two go on searching and next suspect Lawyer Cy Burton but have no conclusive evidence and are about to give up when Millie finds a clue that leads to the hidden fortune of the murdered Mrs. Blake.

A fun film produced to cash in on the popularity of mysteries that swept the late '30's / early '40's. Very well done for an obvious "low budget" b-film. "Want-to-be" reporter and editor's niece do their best to prove innocence of accused murderer. Much circumstantial evidence leads them down several wrong paths, causing frustration and chastizing from elders. Perserverance pays off as they finally convince the law of friend's innocence, surprising everyone with the guilt of the real culprit. Definitely worth viewing.
