Corrupt businessman John Graham has swindled a millionaire into destitution, absconding with his fortune. Newspaperman Steve Haines is on his way to a ballgame when he stumbles on what he believes to be Graham's trail. Bribing his way onto the posh, European-bound ocean liner, Steve manages to get the scoop, but his clever sleuthing ends with a brutal murder. Now a prime suspect with nowhere to run, Steve must ferret out the real killers and establish an alibi for the crime he did not commit.
Go-Get-'Em Haines is a tabloid murder mystery/comedy featuring a non-cowboy performance from William "Bill" Boyd. Boyd's career spanned both the silent and sound eras, and after appearing in dozens of romantic silent films, he won enduring fame as clean-cut cowboy Hopalong Cassidy.
