Reviews
Mine: I have seen all four of the movies made from this story. They are all good, but this is the best. Terrific cast.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Splendid comedy remake of THE FRONT PAGE with Grant as conniving editor, Russell as star reporter (and his ex-wife), Bellamy as mama's boy she's trying to marry amid hot murder story. Terrific character actors add sparkle to must-see film, scripted by Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer. Remade (with the same gender twist) in 1988 as SWITCHING CHANNELS.
