Forlorn Correspondent

A journalist chasing a story
Has adjourned to the place that gets gory
This young wag's fit to go
With no tag on his toe
He'll return in disgrace or in glory.

David Cairns

Investigating a series of grisly killings, reporter Lee Taylor (Lee Tracy) disguises himself as a corpse to smuggle himself into the morgue in Doctor X  (Michael Curtiz, 1932). With Lionel Atwill as the title character, "Doctor Xavier."
