Warner Brothers was the Studio that seemed to Relish in "Message" Movies, MGM tried and Mostly Failed at its Attempts as it did with most of Their Film-Noirs.
At First seeing such Productions as Beneath Their Prestige, They, Late in the Game did give those Genres, although mostly relegated to the B-Unit, some Attention but it was Simply not Their Forte and it Showed.
This has got to be One of the most Overly Sentimental, Insipid, Soapy, and Sappy Newspaper, Crime, and Corruption Movies ever made. The Film Lacks any sort of Believable Resonance and the Lead Actor is so Bad its Cringe Inducing.
Lionel Barrymore, J. Carrol Naish, and Spring Byington can do nothing to Save this Awful Attempt to Explore Syndicated Crime Elements, the Overseeing Role of the Fourth Estate, and Apathetic Citizens.
A Complete Failure.
