Mae Clarke as a rookie reporter who has to prove her worth...
10 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

MAE CLARK has to prove her ability as a reporter in this flashy crime melodrama co-starring PAT O'BRIEN. O'Brien hams it up in true '30s acting style, firing off his lines at everybody in sight with the quick trigger mechanism of a machine gun firing bullets.

The story is a swift moving one of a reporter who gets herself into deep trouble attempting to get the goods on a bunch of gangsters. She's a quick thinker whenever she needs to convince the bad guy that she's just a single woman looking for romance. It's her near escape from danger and her clever ideas that move the story forward, while O'Brien is usually the guy at the other end of the phone barking orders to everyone.

Typical newspaper story with a little romance thrown in. Nothing special, but if you enjoy watching Pat O'Brien ham it up, this is one of his zaniest.
