Pat Marvin, a photographer/reporter for a magazine gets some pictures of a gambling place and barely escapes with her life. The publisher decides to sell the publication, and the staff, headed by the editor, Larry Burke, get the money together to buy it. Larry and Pat decide to get some pictures of a never-photographed society deb, Cynthia Van Loan, and, in the process, stumble upon a murder, identify the killer, expose the girl's scheming fiancée, and get their pictures.

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

I am usually fond of Lew Landers' movies. He was a prolific director, from the thirties to the early sixties. His last films were perhaps his most ambitious and well done, such as MAN IN THE DARK, CAPTAIN KID AND THE SLAVE GIRL, California CONQUEST, CHAIN GANG, TERRIFIED - his last film - and so on. This one is a grade B mystery picture, as we saw thousand of others. You forget it two minutes afterwards. A mixed up of comedy and thriller. The good hero vs bad guys, some very bad done fists fights, and a predictable ending. What's special in there? A genuine Pine Thomas stuff. But, here again, not the best PT production ever made.
I only comment it because it has no one on IMDb, that's all.
