Movie Info

The agent of the title is George Brent, a journalist sent by the Government to get the goods on a crime syndicate. Brent befriends Bette Davis, bookkeeper for suspected crime boss Ricardo Cortez. Bette's cooperation nearly costs her life, but both she and Brent manage a tricky escape during a final shoot-out. The IRS busts Cortez' gang on income tax evasion: Can you say "Al Capone"?

Audience Reviews for Special Agent

One of the low budget quickies that Bette Davis was shoved into by Warner's that made her blood boil before she became queen of the studio. Not bad but not really very good either.
