I do recommend Final Edition
14 December 2002 | by flyingchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

Mae Clarke plays rookie reporter Anne Woodman who's determined to get respect as both a reporter and a girlfriend from condescending editor Sam Bradshaw (Pat O'Brien). Through feminine wiles and an obvious talent for sleuthing Anne manages to gain access to the criminal gang involved in an important murder investigation.

Loads of newspaperman flash is used to enliven this standard story of a female reporter trying to prove her worth, solve the case and win her man. Fast talking editors, bustling, sleep-deprived reporters, dozens of urgently ringing telephones and spinning newspaper overlays are just a few of the fancy tricks used to dazzle the viewers eyes and ears. I do recommend Final Edition however some slightly wooden acting, stilted dialog and a weak climax keep this from being a better effort.
