Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. See more »

Goofs

Thoroughly enjoyable, if somewhat clichéd newspaper yarn!
16 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Although the direction is by no means as tight as it might be, a vintage Poverty Row "B" I thoroughly enjoyed was Breezy Eason's "Honor of the Press" (1932). Although it contains many of the familiar newspaper story ploys, including cub-reporter makes good and editor-publisher in a constant give-and-take conflict, the movie is an absolute must for both Rita La Roy and Dorothy Gulliver fans. Admittedly, Eddie Nugent is no more than adequate as a Junior Fairbanks impersonator, but Wheeler Oakman delivers in his meaty role as the publisher, Franklin Parker carries off the best scene in the movie as a keen photographer, while the lovely Vivian Fields (her first of only two movies) can be glimpsed as a come-on coat-check girl.
