When the owner of the New York Globe-Leader dies without making a will, the paper is inherited by his only living relative, an "old maid schoolteacher" from Nebraska. Martha Aldrich, along with her Aunt Lou, heads for New York, where managing editor Ken Morley's attitude towards women reporters prompts Martha into taking a reporter's job on her own newspaper. Then she proceeds to prove she can be as good a reporter as any man. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

If You love old Black and White comedies from the 30's, try this one.
22 May 2000 | by (Cali) – See all my reviews

Just watched this and 'Meet John Doe' today on the classic movie channel, very enjoyable double feature. Add 'His Girl Friday' and you have a great newspaper trilogy of B&W comedies from the 30's. I have always thought that the late 30's was a grand time for movie making. I really liked Edna May Oliver as Mrs. Atherton, she stole every scene she was in. It is very hard to beat Herman J. Mankiewicz for snappy, funny, sharp dialog. A great escape for 75 minutes of light hearted fun.
