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.
