Veteran reporter Peter Brackett is enjoying new found fame after his book, "White Lies" is published. When he is asked by his newspaper "The Chicago Chronicle" to report on a train crash, he notices new reporter Sabrina Peterson. Brackett's complacency gets rudely shocked by Peterson's report for the rival "Chicago Globe." What follows next is a mad race between the reporters who then cook up possible events that lead up to the crash. After an initial spate of mad reporting, both settle down to get the facts straight, which leads them to uncover opposing information. When each gets setup to be killed at the same place, they escape, and then agree to work together. While they initially do not trust one another, they eventually come to work together to uncover the truth behind the train crash. Written by

Composer Elmer Bernstein wrote the original score for this film. That score was rejected by the filmmakers, and replaced last minute with David Newman's score. Some of the early movie posters actually showed Elmer's name as the composer. See more »

Honey, we've been rescued.
[Peter steps forward, Sabrina, completely naked and wet, grabs him and pulls him back, going from an embarrassed smile to great alarm]
What are you dong?
Don't do this to me, please.
Was I hearing things, or did you call me a second rate novelist?
I-I... I was kidding. I've never even read your book. I'm sure it's quite brilliant.
[steps forward; Sabrina is forced to step with him]
Oh, what are you doing? Walk backwards!

Bland and unimaginative but many films are that what really drags this down is not the lack of chemistry between the leads but the transparent loathing they have for each other. The production of this was notoriously contentious between Roberts and Nolte and their utter abhorrence is something that seeps out of every frame of the movie. Sometimes that can fuel a set and make the picture better, as it did on I Married a Witch where Veronica Lake and Fredric March's mutual animosity somehow translated into a kinetic on screen chemistry, such is not the case here however it just makes an already weak picture that much worse. A good supporting cast and decent production values aren't enough to save this turkey. It stinks!
