Cast & Crew
Charles K. French
When Basil Manning, the editor of the Hollywood Morning Express , refuses to support the election campaign of Hymie Durning, the degenerate city boss who wants to be mayor, Hymie threatens to expose the fact that Manning once served time in the state pen. Billy Hudson, known as the "Hollywood Reporter," wants to marry Manning's daughter, Lois, and the old man offers to give his consent to the match if Billy can come up with some dirt on Hymie. By chance, Billy learns that Hymie runs a gambling den in his house, and, with the aid of Dell Crossley, the paper's photographer, he gets a picture of the den which Manning headlines on the front page. Billy marries Lois, and Manning, having at last found the man who framed him years ealier, finally stands free of the stigma of a criminal reputation.
