"Police Lieutenant Steve McBride is in trouble with his superiors because they suspect him of leaking police information to his fiancée, crack reporter Torchy Blane. During the course of an argument, Torchy and Steve agree that they will not exchange information about police cases in the future. When Bon Ton department store heir Marvin Spencer is found murdered, however, Torchy stops at nothing to scoop the other papers. She sneaks a look at the diary that Gahagan, Steve's driver, keeps locked in his glove compartment, and the clues she finds there lead her to Louisa Revelle, the woman who was with Spencer the night he was stabbed. Louisa admits to Torchy that millionaire Maitland Greer was also present that night, and although she is upset when Greer is charged with murder, Louisa will say nothing more. Always one step ahead of the police, Torchy eavesdrops on the jury room, overhears their decision to declare Greer guilty, and breaks the story in an extra edition of the Star before the verdict is announced in court. Furious, the judge sentences her to jail for contempt. Visiting her a few days later, Steve tells her that after the verdict was announced, Louisa broke down and confessed that she stabbed Spencer when he treatened to shoot Greer, her new lover. Steve adds that it seems like a case of self-defense and speculates that both Louisa and Greer will be cleared. Torchy is pleased that things will work out, but is disappointed that for once, her paper didn't break the story. Then Steve admits that he gave the story to the Star before the other papers, and once again Torchy scoops them all"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Although Roberta Morgan's parents give her everything money can buy, she is an unhappy child. Her parents are too busy for her, and her bratty behavior, which is actually an unspoken cry for love, only alienates them further. The only person to take any notice of her thirteenth birthday is her father's secretary, Williams. Roberta's only friends are a little black boy, Pinkie White, and his sister Arabella. When they take Roberta home with them, she is charmed by the warmth and love of their mother, Mrs. White, who unlike Mrs. Morgan, gives her children first priority. When Roberta tries to reciprocate by inviting Pinkie for dinner, however, Jenkins, the butler, angrily throws Pinkie out. Furious, Roberta acts even brattier, and after her parents leave for Europe, Jenkins locks her in her room. She runs away, but Jenkins tracks her to Pinkie's house. On the way home, Roberta and Jenkins argue and Roberta grabs the steering wheel causing the car to swerve into an oncoming car and kill the driver. At first, out of revenge, Roberta insists that Jenkins was drinking and the accident was all his fault, but after he is sentenced to prison, she confesses and is sent by the court to a special girls' school run by the enlightened Helen Cosgrove. Helen tries every method to reach Roberta and is about to give up when a talk with Williams convinces her to ask for Roberta's help with the younger students. Roberta loves her new duties and is delighted when she makes friends. By the time her parents return from Europe, Roberta has changed, but when Helen tells her that she will be allowed to go home, Roberta cries that her parents never loved her and refuses to go. The Morgans overhear her protests and, chastened, change their ways. At Roberta's next birthday party, they attend with all her new friends, including Pinkie, Arabella and Mrs. White, who has baked a beautiful cake"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
