Synopsis by Hal Erickson
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.
