Richard Bird plays a crime reporter who has a drink problem,now there's a novelty.He is reprimanded by his boss who wants more news.Bird fancies the paper oner's daughter,Nancy Burne.Unfortunately his feelings are not reciprocated as she is in love with a very young looking Edward Underdown.They all end up in a nightclub in Soho.Underdown gets very drunk and ends up at the flat of the eponymous Miss Warren,Diana Napier.It is quite clear that Napier wants him to study more than her etchings.Underdown refuses to make love to her,so Napier threatens to blackmail him.The light is turned off ,there is a scuffle and a bang.the next we know Birds paper has come out with an exclusive on the murder of Warren.Underdown is the natural suspect.He is arrested and sent for trial.Bird changes paper and is laying into Underwood in his new paper.Burne goes to him to try to persuade him to lay off.Bird will only do this if she will marry him.She initially agrees but when he tries to kiss her she is repulsed and all bets are off.Underdown is tried and convicted and sentenced to be executed.Burne goes to Scotland Yard to tell them of what happened with Bird.They get Bird to meet them at Warren's flat.Circumstancial evidence proves that the murderer is Bird.He dashes out of the room,locks the door,phones up his office and gives them the story of his guilt and suicide and jumps out of the window. All this in just under an hour!Typical quota quickie doesn't slow down for a minute to make you consider the flaws.An entertaining thriller.
