| Familiar but fast-paced B movie
Well, we've got a senator up for re-election, a newspaper out to bring him down for headlines' sake, a gangster with a grudge out on parole...nothing too earth shattering. At the center of the story: the senator's son, the senator's secretary, and a newspaper reporter out for a good story. All pretty standard ingredients; all pretty ably carried out here.

The senator's son is played with some enthusiasm by the dashing Frankie Darro, who has some trouble catching a break in this story but persists nevertheless. Muriel Evans, as the senator's very able secretary, also does well. Kane Richmond, as a reporter whose duty to drum up news events eventually bumps up against his sense of justice, takes longer to come around to the side of justice...but it's a 56-minute movie, which doesn't leave a whole lot of time for the suspense to build.

The trio of stars actually interact well and do succeed in making us root for them down the stretch. A few laughs, a little witty banter, a few standard gangster snarls--it's all a quite enjoyable if slight concoction.
