The editor of a New York exploitation newspaper meets the wife he had abandoned years ago, while using another name, at a LonelyHearts ball sponsored by his newspaper. She threatens to expose him as a wife-deserter, wife-beater and an impostor, and, in anger, he hits her with his fist and accidentally kills her. Later, when her body is found, he assigns his protégé reporter to the story, as a good, exploitable follow-up story to the ball. And, then, he is forced to sit back and watch while the reporter slowly tracks down the killer. Written by

Enjoy the great acting of Broderick Crawford, (Mark Chapman) who is the editor of a popular newspaper and his star reporter is John Derek, (Steve McCleary) and a very attractive Julie Allison, (Donna Reed) who gives a great supporting role. Mark Chapman is a go getter for this popular newspaper and always manages to capture crimes of murder with the great assistance of Steve McCleary. However, Steve McCleary investigates a recent murder of a woman who has died rather mysteriously and delves deeply into its background and is able to determine the killer and the complete reason for the murdering of this woman. There are many twists and turns in this film and Broderick Crawford and Donna Reed give outstanding performances which make this a very interesting and enjoyable film to view from 1952.
