Thanks to a practical joker, hotshot radio newscaster Steve (Kent Taylor) announces that prominent financier Pomeroy (Morgan Conway) has been convicted of murder. When it turns out that Pomeroy has been acquitted, Steve, his radio station and the newspaper that owns it are slapped with libel suits. It's up to Steve and his reporter friends Maggie (Linda Hayes) and Smiley (Richard Lane) to figure a way out of the mess. Putting their heads together, the threesome tries to solve the murder case themselves, leading to the usual surprise denoument. Fans of the Charlie Chan films will get a kick out of watching "Number One Son" Keye Luke doing a series of celebrity impersonations!
