Storyline

Jim Martin, a reporter for the London Gazette, investigates what at first appears to be a simple stolen car case, but turns out to be complicated by bank robbery and the murder of a policeman by a man named Rudolf Weinhart. Jim's girlfriend Janet Graham, also a reporter but one restricted to trivial items for children and housewives, wants to be included in the investigation. In the meantime, another reporter, Ronnie Carson, sabotages the investigation because he is in financial straits with the people Weinhart is working with. Working on the same case but often at cross purposes, Jim and Janet pursue evidence of the whereabouts of the fugitive Weinhart and a resolution of the case.

Late Extra review
20 April 2020 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

An eager cub reporter resolves to bring a cop killer to justice. James Mason's film debut sees him deliver a sometimes overwrought performance in a mild thriller which suffers from a plot that is too weak to hold the audience's attention. Alastair Sim struggles to make much of a thankless comic relief supporting role.
