Storyline

John Mack is the city editor of "The Daily News". He wants to run a series of stories on a ship owner's disregard for safety measures on his vessels.

A local disaster later that morning proves Mack right. The disaster story affects Mr. Mack in a very personal way. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

The Lion Squeaks
25 August 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Static, early MGM short covering the city desk of the "Daily News", where the usually-reliable Roscoe Karns is the managing editor. Everyone speaks very loudly and very clearly and every emotion is ludicrously overemphasized. Some interesting setting shots of linotype operators.
