Mobsters place one of their own as an undercover cameraman on a big-city newspaper. The pseudo-photojournalist (Nace) is equipped with a dummy camera that contains a gun with a silencer. Ayres is a go-getter youngster investigating a suicide and double murder that has landed Patrick, his

love interest, in jail. Though the dialog is crisp and natural, the script ultimately drags because of a poorly constructed plot and a lack of emphasis when needed. The actors manage to get through the film well, though, with believable performances that almost cover the highly significant holes

in the plot. MURDER WITH PICTURES is representative of what was both good and bad in studio crime programmers of the 1930s and 1940s.
