THE UNDERWORLD STORY
A disgraced newspaper reporter leaves town after his dealings with a noted gangster are revealed. Away from the big city he latches onto the local paper in a small town where a shocking murder has taken place. But the aftermath of this tragic crime is even more shocking once the reporter takes control of the paper! From the director of the controversial film TRY AND GET ME, this is a similarly gutsy noir. The director would soon become a victim of the Hollywood Blacklist. Starring Dan Duryea, Herbert Marshall, Gale Storm, Howard DaSilva (also blacklisted), Michael O'Shea, Gar Moore.
