Baxter (Robert Livingston) is a good guy daughter and radio personality crusading against pharmaceutical companies flooding the market with phony or even dangerous medicine, especially radium-enriched medicine. Because of this though, Baxter is fired from his radio station - only to be soon employed by a medical magazine run by professor Sterling (Granville Bates), who finances him a show on anoter network. But Sterling runs a crooked racket, blackmailing the companies Baxter is crusading against to run ads in his magazine in exchange for Baxter's silence.

Sterling's daughter Jean (Grace Bradley) soon falls in love with Baxter, and especially after he introduces her to a man dying from radiation poisoning, Pete (Byron Foulger), she comes to the realisation how wrong her dad's business methods were in all those years. By that time though Baxter has found out about Sterling's racket, and after Baxter's arch enemy, pharmaceutical manufacturer Kennedy (Pierre Watkin) has Pete kidnapped, he decides to use Sterling to get to Kennedy - and successfully, too, as Kennedy soon enough seems to be eating out of Baxter's hand ... much to Jean's dismay of course who thinks Baxter has gone rogue.

Baxter convinces Kennedy that he will develop a radium-based cold remedy, but when the man delivering the radium is busted by the police, it doesn't take Kennedy long to figure out who was behind this, and he has Baxter and Jean tied up nice and proper ... but Baxter tricks one of Kennedy's men (William Newell) into freeing them and leading them to the place where kidnapped Pete is hidden - where Baxter has his final shootout with Kennedy, who is then arrested by the police Baxter has long slipped a message ...

Smiley Burnette gives a rather straight performance as Sterling's right-hand-man.

 

Rather weak medical thriller, short on action, filled with too much pointless dialogue, and totally devoid of humour to freshen its dry story up a bit. And the film's hero is a bit too much of the clean-cut, goody two-shoes variety to really spark much interest, which is not helped by a bland performance by Robert Livingston either.
