Storyline

The Movietone news department took the televised proceedings of the United States Senate Crime Investigating Committee hearings, also filmed in their entirety by Movietone News cameraman, culled out the hours of dull senators-vs-lawyers exchanges, and came up with fifty-two minutes of what Fox dubbed the highlights. What they also had, that the television audience didn't have, was revealing close-up that the static-placed television cameras didn't provide, plus scenes outside the court-room in New York City that caught the arrival and departure of the politicians, witnesses and Mafia members, plus cuts to the press room and the hearings in Washington.
