The NY Express' star investigative reporter Johnny Forbes (Kent Taylor) witnesses a murder at the racetrack. After lying to the police about recognizing the murderer, Forbes starts on the trail of killer Chet Matthews. Matthews used to be a hired gun for dead racketeer Jim Hadley. After a tip from Hadley's girlfriend, Forbes enlists the help of goofy cab driver Milton Davis (Shemp Howard) and begins a road trip on Matthews' trail that starts in Brooklyn NY, and ends in Brooklyn MS. Once there, Forbes meets lovely songstress Beth Connell (Frances Langford) at a high-class riverfront casino and immediately falls in love. He also finds Matthews... and the supposedly dead Hadley masquerading as Francis Carvel, a "reputable" Mississippi shipper, actually running a nationwide gambling racket. While Forbes plots to expose Carvel and write the scoop of a lifetime, Matthews and his henchmen plot to leave Forbes floating in the Mississippi.

Rereleased by RealArt Pictures in the early 1950s as DANGER ON THE RIVER.
