Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ace reporter Casey (Stu Erwin) and city editor Blaine (Paul Kelly) are agreed on only one point: women are trouble! This is confirmed when Casey is constantly outscooped by rival news-hound Ruth (Florence Rice), whose sugary Southern-belle accent conceals a will of iron. Casey and Ruth are forced to become reluctant allies while investigating gangland activity in the liquor business. When the bad guys kidnap our hero and heroine, they are saved by an incorruptible cop (Cy Kendall) who'd previously been demoted on the say-so of gangster boss Pusher (Harold Huber). The screenplay has a full quotient of puns and snappy one-liners, which Stu Erwin socks over with his usual shambling aplomb.
