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.

Murder mystery is quite silly at times, but has an exciting climax
9 March 2000 | by wrbtuSee all my reviews

James Mason gets top billing in his first movie, playing an unscrupulous (shall we say, "too fervent") newspaper reporter who is on the trail of a cop killer. Alastair Sim is fun in a minor role as a fellow reporter. There are some parts that seem quite silly (& are unintentionally laughable) by today's standards, but the film has an exciting climax. There are several unexplained issues in the plot that are left dangling.
