The Front PageDVD
Comedy team Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon make the front page in this newspaper romp. Editor Walter Burns, played by Matthau, does not want prize reporter Hildy Johnson, played by Lemmon, to retire from the news business to get married, so he exploits the prison escape of a death row anarchist to keep him from leaving. Billy Wilder directs this film version of the 1928 Ben Hecht and Charlie MacArthur Broadway hit, also featuring Carol Burnett, Austin Pendleton, and Susan Sarandon.
