William Boyd took a break from Hopalong Cassidy to do this B movie mystery for Republic Pictures in which he plays an investigative reporter hot on the trail of a Samuel Insull like utility magnate who is fleeing and absconding with a whole lot of his investor's money.

The culprit Lee Shumway takes a passenger liner bound for Europe and Boyd follows him on board and sails with him. During an amateur theatrical production on shipboard someone slips real bullets into a gun and Shumway is shot dead. There are a host of suspects as a whole lot of people lost money investing with the dead magnate.

Go Get 'Em Haines which sounds like a rousing sports drama instead of a murder mystery is a nicely paced mystery which we have to give some allowances for as it is the product of a B film studio. Herbert J. Yates didn't exactly bust the budget for this one, but Boyd does nicely in the role.

Alas though for his career and for better or worse he was Hopalong Cassidy and the public wasn't going to accept at this point as anything else.
