Dick Powell portrays Fred Jordan, a wise guy columnist for a big city newspaper. When he writes a smug column about normal men who panic like animals during a fire, he receives a letter from a maniac who promises to show him the true meaning of panic. The deranged letter writer threatens to kill Jordan sometime within the next 24 hours! A dark, superb example of film noir with plenty of atmosphere, humor and intrigue!
