See page 3) THE STORY (Not for Publication ) Managing editor Wayne Morris runs a series of articles in his newspaper against racketeer Bruce Bennett. Publisher Alan Hale, threatened with a libel suit, transfers him to the “Bewildered Hearts” Department. On this assignment, Morris encounters a blonde whose boy friend, James Holden, is unable to account for his strange disappearance the previous night. With girl reporter Janis Paige, Morris traces Holden’s whereabouts that night to a rooming house where he learns that he is connected with the murder of the star witness in the Bennett fraud case. Bennett’s leg-man, James Mitchell, gets his orders to halt this unofficial investigation. He attempts to run Janis down with his car, and tackles Morris unsuccessfully with a gun. The two reporters keep on, however, and gather photographic proof of Bennett’s guilt, enough evidence to convict him of murder. Morris goes back to his managing editor spot with Janis at his side. Running Time: 69 Minutes
