Synopsis[edit]

A newspaper reporter, Bruce Corey, returns from the war to New York City. After reporting to his job at his old newspaper, Corey finds that his old editor doesn't like his new ideas.

Corey and his war correspondent friends start their own tabloid style newspaper which will feature "the news before it happens." Corey gambles with a mob boss and wins the money to start up his paper, the New York Mercury, an instant success.

However, because of stories that may implicate the newspaper's silent partner in a number of crimes, Corey finds himself and his staff threatened and even the targets of gunfire. Corey finally kills the mob boss and flees the country on a plane that is attempting a trans-Atlantic flight; the plane crashes and he is killed.
