Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Several low-budget films came out in the 1950s "exposing" such scandal magazines as Confidential. Most of them came off as sleazy as the publications they were targetting. Republic's Scandal, Inc. is one of the more subdued examples of this genre; in fact, it's so low-key that at times it induces slumber. His good name sullied by a tell-all rag, movie star Robert Hutton threatens dire consequences to the reporter responsible. When that reporter turns up murdered, Hutton is naturally the prime suspect. Attorney Paul Richards takes on Hutton's cause, simultaneously clearing him of the murder charge and the earlier scandal that ruined him in Hollywood.
