Behind The Headlines ★★★

Reporter Lee Tracy broadcasts his news stories from the scenes of the event. His radio reporting scoops the news stories of the reporters from the daily newspapers, who resent him. Ex-girlfriend Diana Gibson is particularly resentful and enjoys disrupting Tracy’s broadcasts. Gangsters intending to rob a government gold shipment kidnap Gibson when she interferes in their plans. Using his equipment to track her, Tracy joins police and the FBI in their desperate quest to find her before the gang kills her.

Tracy is the main reason to watch this moderately enjoyable B-level film. Donald Meek, who usually played a mousey character, is cast against type as the cold-blooded leader of the gangsters.
