Having just come into a $375,000 trust fund on her 21st birthday, former child star Jane Withers certainly didn't need to star in the Pine-Thomas melodrama Danger Street, but she was determined to prove her worth as an adult dramatic actress. Withers and Robert Lowery costar as Pat Marvin and Larry Burke, photojournalists for an employee-owned magazine. Hoping to keep their publication's coffers replenished, Pat and Larry plan to sell a compromising candid-camera photo to another magazine. Unfortunately the purchaser of the photo is murdered, plunging hero and heroine into a complicated mystery. Playing detective, Pat manages to trick a confession out of the killer-but will she live long enough to tell the cops?
