Storyline

Newspaper editor Sheldon Black is being shoved aside for the publisher's slimy protégé, Dean Lowell, who passed Black's ideas off as his own. Before exiting, Black orders Lowell to cover the execution of a condemned man that Lowell was friends with in the war. If the reptile Lowell had been willing to soil his "war hero" reputation and testify, he could have saved the man from the electric chair. Instead, he remains quiet and turns in quite a news story Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>

A rather nasty but realistic newspaper tale
7 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Eddie Albert is rather convincing here as a newspaper executive, who asks to his associate to get an interview, at any cost, of a prisoner waiting to his execution in the death row. And because the man waiting for death was a good friend, during the war, of the associate. I felt a little uncomfortable to watch this episode which may look like a vulture feast, the journalists waiting to get the best paper from the execution. Yes, folks, a bittersweet tale that made be dizzy. I guess that's exactly how things happen in newspapers offices. The lasts seconds of this tale are forbidden to be missed.

Directed by the Hollywood vet John Brahm.
