The Front Page

Movies

Based on the wildly successful (and controversial) play by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, THE FRONT PAGE follows hard-boiled crime reporter Hildy Johnson (Pat O Brien) who has vowed to quit the business and marry his new sweetheart (Mary Brian). But when a political radical (George E. Stone) escapes from custody on the eve of his hanging, the reporter s room is plunged into comedic chaos, and Hildy s brash editor (Menjou) sees it as an opportunity to manipulate the reporter into staying.
