A fleeting appearance by James Stewart in early short subject...
To print or not to be print--that's the dilemma facing newspaper editor CHARLIE SALE when he has to choose between a headline that becomes a matter of priorities for him. Should he do the tabloid headline about Pretty Face Wilson gunned down in the street, or should he do the farmers a favor and print the one about a frost warning?
Depends on what someone thinks is "important news." What matters here is that this is a very stale, very inadequate short overacted by Charlie Sale and presenting JAMES STEWART in a very subordinate role as a hick assistant who wears a dumb expression and mumbles his way through a small role, looking rather detached until he sees a man being gunned down in the street. Not exactly a standout part for Stewart.
Very forgettable little short without any style at all.
