Reporter Wally Williams (Wallace Ford) has just married Alice (Jean Parker) and they want to spend their honeymoon in an exclusive Manhattan penthouse ... when Wally sees a man falling from a window to his death just across the street ... and being a good reporter, he immediately phones the news in. his editor (Jed Prouty) though blackmails him into following up on the estory, and before he knows it, WAlly finds another dead body and as a result spends the night being questioned by the police, while his wife feels more and more neglected, only being comforted by other reporters' wives.

Once released by the police, Wally finds himself forced to go on investigating, until the organisation behind the two murders, led by Fifth Columnist Louis Detmar (Robert Frazer) and local mobster Nick Paul (Matty Fain) get a bit panicky and they hife locl gangster Sparrow (Paul Fix) to take care of the problem ... but Sparrow is not only a gangster but also a good American, and he sides with Wally to fight the Fifth Columnists, and ultimately even frees Wally and Alice from their clutches and helps bringing them to justice.

In the end, Wally figures it's high time to pay back his editor, so he gives the story of his fight against the Fifth Column away to all journalists who care to listen but fails to phone it in with his newspaper himself. After this, Sparrow forces Wally to go home to his wife at gunpoint, to at least enjoy the rest of their honeymoon ...

 

Cheaply made but nicely done crimethriller of the nosey reporter variety, and while the plot of the film might not be especially original, it highly profits from its light-footed approach, its slick pacing and a likeable central performance by Wallace Ford, who does everything to not come across as he-man hero.
