Choreographer Danny Dare was the directorial guiding hand behind the Columbia B The Main Event. Robert Paige stars as a dilettante detective investigating the kidnapping of boxer Gene Morgan. The abduction was carried off all too easily, and its proximity to the obligatory Big Fight is all too convenient. With the help of his gal friday Jacqueline Wells, Paige gets to the truth of the matter in record time (55 minutes, to be exact). The Main Event, like most Columbia programmers, started out as merely a title, with the details to be filled in during production.
