Murder mystery is quite silly at times, but has an exciting climax
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.
