Star Reporter ★½ 1939

A son takes over his father's newspaper when dad is killed by gangsters. The son uses the paper in an attempt to destroy the underworld, but stumbles on some startling personal information that could drastically backfire on him. Generally interesting plot, but has some implausibility and too-broad characterization. 62m/B VHS, DVD . Warren Hull, Marsha Hunt, Morgan Wallace, Clay Clement, Wallis (Clarke) Clark, Virginia Howell, Paul Fix, Joseph Crehan; D: Howard Bretherton.
