Hard-boiled newsman MIKE KENT, investigating the murder of a famous scientist by poison and the disappearance of his mysterious invention, inadvertently discovers a plot to steal a fortune in jewels in the so-so 1948 B-flick, The Cobra Strikes.
Not that it's all bad. Sure, you never heard of most of the actors, and they're not very good, and the plot's a little sketchy in parts, but there are a couple of well-staged murders (particularly the one in a steam room), and the sci-fi elements (ie: the mysterious invention and the "science" behind it) aren't as dopey as they could have been.
