Terry plays an energetic reporter in this better-than-average programmer from Republic. His enthusiasm causes him to print a false story about society deb (Barrie) and consequently lose his job. He gets involved with a gangster smuggling operation in order to win back his job while Barrie

somehow falls for him. But he will not marry her as she's a mite too rich for his blood. When she is kidnaped by the mobsters he rescues her, gets back his job and ultimately marries the girl. This is a cut above average for its style. The direction pumps some real excitement into the routine

story with a fast development and some good suspense. The acting is fine with good performances by Terry and Barrie. Kennedy and Frawley (later to become immortal as Fred Mertz on TV's "I Love Lucy") provide some fun moments as well with their portrayals of a bumbling pair of comedy crooks.
