Cast & Crew
Faced with a newspaper exposé, weak-willed mayoral candidate George Austin tells political boss Stanley Moore he is quitting the race; Moore threatens him with a gun, and Austin dies of a heart attack. Fearing scandal, Moore arranges for Austin's body to be disposed of in a fake automobile accident. Charles Hill, a crack newspaper reporter, is suspicious of the "accident" and gets a job working for Moore. Hill gets his story, but it is never published; for Thomas Walker, Hill's editor at the paper, kills the story as a wedding present for Hill and Moore's daughter, Beryl, with whom Hill has fallen madly in love.
