Enjoy a Little Newspaper Story with "Roar of the Press"
Several less than warm reviews have been posted here regarding "Roar of the Press," but if a viewer decides to take a look at the film based on the knowledge that this is a B-movie about a newspaper reporter from 1941 and that it stars Jean Parker and Wallace Ford, satisfaction and enjoyment are very likely. The many actors with spoken parts are familiar to fans of old movies, if not by name at least by sight, and they do a good job of acting together and expressing themselves in a fairly natural way. Fans of B-westerns will see at least a couple of actors who have wandered off the range to appear here, including the venerable Charles King. The "Roar of the Press" story is a bit contrived perhaps, but no complaints here about the directing or editing. I say: pretty good stuff all the way!
