| gangsta film with Edward G
Edward G. is Bruce, who comes back from war, and wants to start up a newspaper. To help with funding, he takes on partner "Lambert", (Eddie Arnold) a mafia giant. and since it's being backed by a shady character, Bruce is determined to not just report the news, but also CREATE the news! all in the name of increasing publication numbers. a snapshot of a time when the thugs ran so much of business. but the people he is hurting along the way start to resent being talked about in the headlines every day. and that includes his friends, employees... maybe even his business partner Lambert. It's a pretty good film, but it had the bad luck to be released a couple weeks before Pearl Harbor day, when we were dragged into WW II. This one isn't played much anywhere; I caught this on Turner Classics, so maybe it'll get more play now. some pretty big names in it, so its certainly an interesting bit of history. also an ironic tidbit...about 70 minutes in, there's a crack about someone making a speech to reduce the size of the navy. and a couple weeks after this was released, the U.S. Navy would actually get bombed at Pearl Harbor. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy. directed some great films, although many were uncredited, like Wizard of Oz....
