Cast & Credits

Synopsis

Comedy about newspaper reporters who become concerned with a scoop about a murder.

The following statement regarding the story appears after the opening credits: 'It all happened in the "Dark Ages" of the newspaper game - - when to a reporter "getting that story" justified anything short of murder. Incidentally you will see in this picture no resemblance to the men and women of the press of today. Ready? Well, once upon a time - -'
