A reporter from the Chicago Times uncovers police corruption when he investigates the case of two men sent to jail for the murder of a police officer eleven years before. Initially reluctant to accept the men are innocent, he later finds evidence which inspires him into campaigning for their release.

Decent black & white film noir with Stewart as reliable as ever as the go-getting reporter; however the pace of the film is slowed down slightly by the near-2-hours running time.
