The basic setup is the fold of a reporter as a detective, a miraculously simple concept in narration, as his job is to 'get the story.'
He has an easy hookup with a perky girl, though cleanly post-code.
Our reporter is an adventure-loving party man (which then meant an occasional drunk) who cannot keep money and who hates authority.
The environment is one in which police are inept and essentially invisible, and 'the paper' runs the town behind the scenes. You can easily see the seeds of noir here.
Oh, and we have a stereotyped villain, a mystery man who calls himself The Eel and who calls to taunt police (represented by the DA).
Good digging here, if you have the patience.

SYNOPSIS: After being fired from his job in Chicago, a top crime reporter talks his way into the employ of a tabloid in St Louis.
COMMENT: A pleasant but rather action-less little movie, spun out with loads of talk.
Fortunately, the players led by live-wire Robert Armstrong and the really super-cute Maxine Doyle do manage to sustain interest. Well, even my interest anyway. But I think everyone will admit that even James Burke has a spicy role.
And the really-really good news is that production values are unusually glossy by Monogram's generally rather humble standards.
