Two rival newspapers are engaged in a circulation battle, complicated by the fact that a vicious gangster inserts himself into the middle of it. Also complicating matters is that one newspaper's editor and circulation director are competing for the affections of a pretty blonde reporter. Written by
Two newspapers are in the middle of a circulation war, and a gangster kingpin gets in the middle of it. In the meantime, the editor and the circulation manager at one of the papers are fighting over the favors of the cute blonde secretary/cartoonist/reporter. Will our two heroes and heroine continue to get out the BULLDOG EDITION, or will they all die in a hail of bullets from the gangster element?
This is one of those movies in the 30s that simulated speed and pace with montages of presses rolling and cars speeding and newsboys running,and people fighting and killing, all accompanied by an energetic movie score. And, in this case, that's probably a good thing, because the plot is standard issue mid thirties, and the Code has disposed of the fun sexy bits. Nevertheless, this being a Republic production, the movie is edited for speed, and the action scenes are pretty good. If you like 30s movies with low budgets, this is a pretty good one. But good luck remembering much about it a week from now.
