Storyline

Roguish, cynical newsreel cameraman Bill Allen usually has a dame in one hand and a hip flask in the other, yet catches breaking stories and disasters of all sorts on film. When he meets newspaper columnist Jane Mallory, mutual attraction results; but she's too smart to fall for him (or is she?) unless he reforms (but does she really want him to?). Includes exciting stock footage of fire, flood and earthquake. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Jane Mallory: Got 400 wires to send to anxious relatives.
Bill Allen: What are they anxious about?
Jane Mallory: You wouldn't understand. The only thing you can get through that skull of yours is something you can photograph.
Bill Allen: You know what the Chinaman said: One picture's worth ten thousand words.
Jane Mallory: Yeah, well, that's because no one can read what a Chinaman writes.

Headline Shooter (1933)

** (out of 4)

Boring crime picture from RKO about Bill Allen (William Gargan), a newsreel photographer who is constantly trying to get the next "big" story. Back in the office he falls for the lovely Jane (Frances Dee) but she's already taken by Hal (Ralph Bellamy). Soon all three paths are about to cross when Bill gathers some video footage of something that might destroy many people. HEADLINE SHOOTER is pretty much one cliché after another without anything good going for it. If you're someone like me who enjoys checking out these forgotten "B" movies then this one here offers a few things but most would be best served to just skip it. Believe it or not but we've actually got a pretty good cast of characters here with Bellamy being a bit shaky but it's always great to see him and notice that even in his early days he always turned out to be the "other guy." Robert Benchley is also on hand in a small part as is Wallace Ford, Jack LaRue, Betty Furness and Henry B. Walthall appears in an uncredited part. Dee is pretty entertaining in her bit but the entire love triangle is just downright boring. Gargan isn't really leading man material, at least not in this role, as he has trouble keeping you interested in what he's doing and he just doesn't have any charm to win the viewer over.
