Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A veritable harvest of cliches, Duty's Reward concentrates on the exploits of fearless newspaper editor George Fawcett. Hoping to rid his city of criminals, Fawcett nearly loses both his reputation and his life in the process. In the end, the villains are brought to heel through the efforts of a courageous motorcycle cop, played by Alan Roscoe. Fairly slow going for most of its running time, Duty's Reward springs into life during a climactic collapsed-building sequence. The heroine is Eva Novak, while the comedy relief is vaudevillian Lou Archer, who later worked as a stunt double with Columbia's 2-reel comedy unit.
