      Audience Member This may be the finest movie about newspapers ever made. Then again, it may not be. Worth seeing though - Wallace Ford is always watchable, and there's some great shots of NYC in the 1940's. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review kevin w Riding on the fumes of Howard Hawks popular His Girl Friday (only one year before), this Wallace Ford starring feature (and they don't come too often) is about a newlywed reporter trying to reform his errant bachelor reporter ways and go honeymoon with his bride, if his managing editor will get off of his back about skunking out a spy ring operation story first. Will he ever get to his honeymoon? Expect lots of 40's lingo delivered on the quick. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Mostly entertaining B-movie that is clearly inspired by the success of HIS GIRL FRIDAY. Actors are competent, if not better. Dialogue may not be memorable, but it doesn't drag down the movie. The plot moves at a crisp pace. Not a bad way to spend a little more than an hour. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
