The Underworld Story
Tabloid journalist Mike Reese (Dan Duryea) is fired from his job when a story he runs is blamed for a gangland assassination on the steps of City Hall. With his credibility on the wane in the city, Reese takes a position at the tiny suburban paper of publisher Catherine Harris (Gale Storm). When an innocent woman is charged with the murder of the daughter-in-law of local business tycoon E.J. Stanton (Herbert Marshall), Reese seizes the opportunity to redeem his journalistic integrity.
