Yellow journalism is not exactly new, as this 1932 sendup of a keyhole-peeping columnist proves. Early Hollywood bad boy Lee Tracy (who created the Hildy Johnson role for The Front Page on Broadway) portrays raspy Alvin Roberts, whose zest for unearthingshort marriage-to-maternity spans among Broadways notables lifts him from lowly clerk to tabloid king. Once on top, hes convinced that no one is exempt from his poison pen. But there are some pinstriped types in town who intend to prove him dead wrong.This fast-paced film features a cast of fine character actors. It also marked the film debut of Dick Powell, who later went on to play Philip Marlowe in Murder, My Sweet. But it is Tracys cocky, ingenious scandalmonger that had critics raving, Lee Tracydoes the role to the hilt (Motion Picture Herald). **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
