Not exactly a proto-feminist text (despite being based on a story called Women Are Born Newspapermen), nor for that matter an at all accurate picture of journalism, but still a vivid comedy-drama with Davis and Brent in fine form as the wisecracking couple working for rival papers and trying to better each other in following up a murder story. Absurd at times, with the two papers at one point printing absolutely identical stories, but directed and acted with sparkle and speed.
