  • The job of a newspaperman was never as hectic as in this hard-hitting drama. Sam Gatlin (Jack Webb) struggles through a difficult home life while making ends meet as the managing editor for a Los Angeles publication. This particular day he argues with his wife about adopting a child while a girl who chases after her dog falls into the sewer. Beyond that, the Air Force, attempting to break a speed record, crash a plane, killing the relative of one of Gatlin's co-workers. Gambling over the sex of children born to movie stars and mistreatment of copy boys also runs rampant in the office. Jack Webb also directed this film which was not appreciated by the journalism community upon its release in 1959.
