  1. Good thriller and cast. Nice pics. A shame John Drew Barrymore didn’t have much of a career.

  2. Actually, Barrymore was the weakest element for me – I couldn’t get along with his performance at all. Still, I like the movie a lot. Some complaints have been made about the soapy nature of it but I think that’s a very attractive aspect.
    Anyway, I’m a sucker for newspaper thrillers, Lang and starry casts.

    1. i like the soapy part and how it foresees the hype-machine news media we have today. and fun fact it’s based on a novel by Charles Einstein, half brother of Albert Brooks & comedian Bob Einstein (Super Dave Osborne)
