      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine This tough and honest film was written and directed by Clifford Odets. Especially notable is its swift but unhurried cross-cutting from face to face during the climactic moments... Nov 11, 2019 Full Review Dwight MacDonald Esquire Magazine I never overestimated Mr. Odets, not even in the Thirties when he was the Paddy Chayefsky of the Left. Now he is on the little-man-what-now kick and the results are even more painful. Jul 12, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews An above par courtroom drama. Rated: B- Sep 11, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      ashley h The Story on Page One is a disappointing film. It is about an adulterous pair who is charged with murder. Rita Hayworth and Gig Young give horrible performances. The script is badly written. Clifford Odets did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
