Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Better than I'd expected.
2 August 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

'a woman has no business trying to run a newspaper'--and this came from a WOMAN in this film!!

Walter Byron isn't exactly a household name and so when I saw that this low-budget film starred him, I assumed it would be terrible. Fortunately I was wrong, "Exposure" is far better than I'd assumed it would be.

The film begins with Andy Bryant destroying his career as a reporter in New York. After going off on an alcoholic bender, he finds himself on the West Coast and out of a job. However, he doesn't stay destitute for long and gets himself a job running a dying newspaper. The Dispatch is being crushed by its competitor and Andy convinces the lady who owns the paper to give him a chance--and his sort of sensationalistic journalism saves the day. However, what about his alcohol abuse? Can Andy remain sober for long? And, what about his relationship with the owner? She sure seems unwilling to gamble that he's kicked his alcohol dependence.

While very little super-exciting happens in this film, it's a nice slice of life picture. Byron handles the lead very well--making you wonder why his career in films would soon fizzle. All in all, very watchable and enjoyable.
