This fictionalized account of Thomas Dewey's fight to clean up the rackets in New York City has Litel as the detective appointed to investigate racketeering. Purcell plays his bumbling sidekick who falls in love with Dale, the secretary who gives Litel the information he needs to pin down

the rackets boss. Screenwriters Gamet and Ryan are former newspaper people and manage to give a fairly accurate account of what the racketeering conditions were in New York at the time. Though the picture is a bit heavy-handed on the crime-doesn't-pay aspect, it still offers a lot of well-paced,

believable action.
