Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Feeble romantic drama with Brian Donlevy and Claire Trevor as rival newshounds trying to unmask a gang smuggling aliens (the human variety) into the USA. Made by Fox, it lacks the tabloid, crusading spirit of the Warner Bros equivalents - Five Star Final, for instance - while the class difference between the two stars seems derived from It Happened One Night. The rough-hewn Donlevy is hardly in Gable's league as the romantic hero, however. Rita Hayworth, billed as Rita Cansino, makes an early appearance as one of the illegal aliens.
