STARRING:
Mary Brian, Adolphe Menjou, Pat O'Brien
DIRECTED BY:
Lewis Milestone
GENRE:
Comedy
Adolphe Menjou and Pat O'Brien star in the screen version of the Broadway hit about big city news reporting. Edward Everett Horton, Mary Brian, and Slim Summerville are also featured in this classic from director Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Wester Front) and producer Howard Hughes. The Front Page not only paved the way for all newsroom comedies to come, but it's probably the funniest film ever made about a hanging! (BW)
