Description by OLDIES.com:

A series of bond couriers have been brutally murdered, and while the police are totally baffled, fearless reporter Barney Callahan is tirelessly digging for clues. The investigation leads him to the Marine Cafe, where he has been romancing gorgeous chorus girl, Judy King. Barney suspects that nightclub owner Joe Marco is connected to the bond robberies. When Marco is shot to death, the killer frames Judy, who is arrested. The shell-shocked newsman launches into a desperate attempt to uncover the truth, and save his girl from the electric chair.

Michael Whalen is probably best remembered for his starring role in two Shirley Temple classics, Poor Little Rich Girl (1936) and Wee Willie Winkie (1937). While New York Sleeps is the second of three "Roving Reporters" movies in which he portrays intrepid Manhattan newshound Barney Callahan, assisted by trusty photographer Chick Chandler. The other films in this series are Time Out For Murder (1938) and Inside Story (1939). While New York Sleeps boasts a strong supporting cast featuring beautiful Jean Rogers, William Demarest and Sidney Blackmer.
