Whilst this is a fairly routine newspaper murder mystery film,nevertheless it contains a fine dramatic performance from,of all people,Sid James.he plays a news editor hiding a dark secret.The plot is routine.Hy Hazell is a woman journalist who has an artist for a lodger,one day she comes back and finds his throat cut.Since there seems to be no other suspects out there Hazell becomes the prime focus of police attention.The film is not in any event about the murder so much as how Hugh Williams,can keep his knowledge of the crime secret form the police and other journalists to enable him to get a scoop.Whilst not one of the leading players,James's character is nonetheless central to the climax of this relatively unknown film.
