1951106 MinsDrama
Billy Wilder's bleak, biting and brilliant newspaper melodrama, forged out in his best and most incisive style, stars Kirk Douglas at his meanest as reporter Chuck Tatum, a man so far removed from humanity that he is willing to let a rock-fall victim die to prolong a scoop. Jan Sterling is sluttish and sullen as the trapped man's wife. In a film that's a clear precursor of his own 1974 The Front Page, Billy Wilder effortlessly matches Tatum's cynicism with lines like 'It's a better story if we get him out.'
