Overeager cub reporter Chick Brian (Eric Linden) thinks he has the story that will land him the front-page byline of his dreams when he snaps the picture of a diamond smuggler in a most candid situation. Unfortunately for the hapless Chick, it only lands him in hot water with his editor Jeff Dale (Roscoe Karns) because the smuggler is the mistress of their publisher. With his story killed, Chick heads to the countryside with his girlfriend Mary (Dorothy Jordan), but the couple become stranded by a sudden rain storm causing them to seek shelter inside the Lame Dog Inn. While drying off, they hear a gunshot and come across a murder scene and confront criminal Fred Dykes (Bruce Cabot) and his moll Louise (Phyllis Clare). Louise persuades the deadly Dykes to spare the couple but leaves her handbag behind. Armed with the evidence of the killer’s identity, Chick conceives a fool-hardy scheme to frame himself for the murders for the sake of a sensational scoop. What could possibly go wrong?
