Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

In this early, early talkie, a newspaper reporter convinces a judge to release an accused killer who used to be a colleague before he became an alcoholic. The reporter then gets the fellow a job at the paper. Trouble ensues when the city editor continues to doubt the innocence of the new employee and begins investigating for himself. Sure enough, he discovers that the fellow was entangled with the deceased's wife. Just when it looks as if he may be convicted after all, his loyal friend scoops it all.
