Description by OLDIES.com:

Nightclub operator Tony Franco has a shady but lucrative side business selling counterfeit sweepstakes tickets that never have a prayer of paying out. Everything runs smoothly, until Grandpa Sanford buys a phony ticket that turns out to be an exact duplicate of the real winner. In a panic, Franco orders his goons to confiscate the counterfeit, but the confrontation turns violent, and Sanford ends up dead. Investigative reporter Joe MacIntyre wants to prove to the police that Franco is responsible, but first he must convince Sanford's grandchildren - Gloria, a singer in Franco's club, and her plucky newsboy brother, Michael.

Co-star Frankie Darro spent his career playing to his small stature and athletic background, often times portraying characters much younger than his actual age. Here, he plays the quintessential Darro role, as scrappy paperboy Michael Sanford.
