Speed Reporter affords the viewer an undistilled opportunity to watch legendary stuntman Richard Talmadge in action. So what matter that the film is the cheapest of low-budget B productions? Typifying the pinchpenny budget are the scenes involving criminal mastermind Rychard Cramer: the villain's "luxurious" offices look like someone's broom closet. Talmadge's most eyepopping stunt is a leap from a third-story roof onto a moving truck. Speed Reporter was released to television under the title Deadline.
