The story of the fight of a small-town newspaper to free an innocent girl of a murder charge, with the publisher of a metropolitan city newspaper heading, by forced circumstances, the opposing forces.
This was filmed in 1949 but not released until 1950.
District Attorney Ralph Munsey:
Take it easy, Reese. Things are tough all over. Pretty soon a man won't be able to sell his own mother.
In the funeral scene, there is a head stone marked "Robert Elis 1720-1777". After the service, as the mourners are leaving, the same head stone appears in a completely different place.
