This is a fast-moving, well-acted film, a flag-waver for newspapers at heart, which gets a bit much at the end-but overall quite good. Tough-hided characters all over, from Ethel Barrymore's martriarchal owner of the paper own down through Kim Hunter, Bogie the editor in chief/crusador, Paul Stewart in a nice turn as the sports guy and Ed Begley Sr as Bogie's right hand man. This has a little film noir look to it, the seen in the bar is just teeming with long wool jackets and '50's fedorahs, straight outta a Superman comic from the time.
Gazzo-2 recommends this film and gives it a:
*** outta **** rating.
