Don Phelan, the ace newsreel reporter falls in love with , Wilma Howell, the daughter of the owner of another newsreel company that is a bitter rival of the one Don Works for. The rivalry between the two companies, with cameramen nudging each other out of the way, sabotage acts by one against the other, and reporters fighting to get the 'scoop' does not bode well for the romance.Written by

"Ladies Crave Excitement" will never be mistaken for great art, but tiny little Mascot Pictures actually created a decent little B-movie with this picture. While it stars relatively unknowns, it more than makes up for it with action and a breezy script. Perhaps the average viewer won't think much of it, but fans of the Bs should be more than entertained by it.
The story is about the adventures of Don Phelan (Norman Foster). He has a job filming stuff for a small newsreel company, Union Newsreel, and the guy is a nut who seems more than willing to do just about anything to get a story. The problem is that his boss is a grouchy sort (what else is there in this sort of film?) and there are always baddies trying to stop him--such as mobsters who try to fix a horse race and escaped prisoners! In fact, the film has practically no let up...with lots of crazy adventures crammed into about an hour...an entertaining hour.
