A private detective, who has been shot, stumbles into the office of Michael Shayne (Hugh Beaumont), and dies before Shayne can question him. Shayne finds a baggage ticket in his hand. He claims it and finds the checked-bag contains the loot from a robbery. Now, he has about fifty minutes left of the running time to find the crooks, bring them to justice and return the money to the rightful owners. And needs all of it.

Quotes

[first lines]
[Mike finds his secretary doing calisthenics in his office]
Michael Shayne: Angel, what are you doing?
Phyllis Hamilton: My beauty exercises, Mike.
Michael Shayne: You don't need to do that.
Phyllis Hamilton: Oh, no? With all those dizzy blondes throwing themselves at you, I'm not taking any chances. Besides, I want you to love me when I'm old and gray.
Michael Shayne: Why should a couple of years make a difference? Anyway, I'm allergic to blondes. Can I help it if I'm irresistible?
