Former newspaperman Brooks made a good fist of this media drama. He has Bogey in his favour as the crusading editor of a New York daily, battling to expose crime kingpin Gabel, while at the same time persuading owner Barrymore from selling the whole operation. Tautly scripted and put over with a feeling for authenticity (it was shot in the offices of the New York Daily News), it's one of those films where Brooks' liberal sympathies and no-nonsense storytelling is squarely on target.
