| Better than I'd expected.
'a woman has no business trying to run a newspaper'--and this came from a WOMAN in this film!!

Walter Byron isn't exactly a household name and so when I saw that this low-budget film starred him, I assumed it would be terrible. Fortunately I was wrong, "Exposure" is far better than I'd assumed it would be.

The film begins with Andy Bryant destroying his career as a reporter in New York. After going off on an alcoholic bender, he finds himself on the West Coast and out of a job. However, he doesn't stay destitute for long and gets himself a job running a dying newspaper. The Dispatch is being crushed by its competitor and Andy convinces the lady who owns the paper to give him a chance--and his sort of sensationalistic journalism saves the day. However, what about his alcohol abuse? Can Andy remain sober for long? And, what about his relationship with the owner? She sure seems unwilling to gamble that he's kicked his alcohol dependence.

While very little super-exciting happens in this film, it's a nice slice of life picture. Byron handles the lead very well--making you wonder why his career in films would soon fizzle. All in all, very watchable and enjoyable.
