Well-acted tale about civic corruption, 16 November 2005
Author: tbabiar1 from United States

Prolific director Don Weis' directorial debut, stars Keefe Brasselle as newspaper reporter Mike Perrivale, who devises a promotional stunt to further his career. Upon learning that cantankerous old history teacher Hugo Trimble (Lionel Barrymore, in one of his final performances) is dying, Mike writes up a glowing tribute, crediting various accomplishments (mostly fabricated) to Mr.Trimble. The well-meaning deed goes awry when crime boss Frankie Scarbine (J. Carroll Naish), angered that some of the civic reforms credited to Trimble may interfere with his own nefarious operations, threatens to make trouble for Mike. Fine performances from Brasselle, Barrymore, Sally Forrest as Mike's love interest, and veteran actor Lewis Stone as Josh.
