[Sound of gunfire. Margie rushes in with her hat and backside smoking]
Why, Marg, you're all shot up!
Am I? Look at that hat. Look at it! Boss, it's a good thing I had on my bulletproof brassier, that gang would have made me look like a punchi board.

Marjorie Beebe plays the title character, a fast-talking, quick-acting tabloid reporter who will do whatever it takes to get her story. Her editor gets a tip that a famous football player as married a Broadway beauty so he sends Margie to the stadium to get the story. HOT NEWS MARGIE is a 7-minute comedy that really isn't all that funny but it's still a must see simply because of how strange it is. I must say that I didn't laugh a single time, which is usually a death nail for a comedy but it actually didn't hurt this film too bad as it was made up by the sheer weirdness. The film runs a very quick 7-minutes, which doesn't allow any time for an actual story and instead it seems as if the director just had everyone acting and talking as fast as they could so that they could get through everything. The manor of which Margie goes about getting her story at the football game is just strange and especially a joke inside the locker room. Then we have the ending that I won't spoil but lets just say it's a keeper.
