“A revelation, as timely now as when it was made” -SF Chronicle

Director/writer Billy Wilder spares no one in this blistering look at the seedy relationship of the press, the news it reports, and how it reports it:. Kirk Douglas, at his cynical best, plays a disgraced reporter who will stop at nothing to promote and regain his career–even exploiting a man trapped in a mine shaft. Keep an eye out for Jan Sterling, terrific as the miner’s ruthless wife. It all adds up to a gripping indictment of media hype and manipulation, shabby journalism and consequence.
