Grim Newspaper Drama With Good Twist
11 June 2002 | by sobaokSee all my reviews

George Bancroft is the ruthless editor of a scandal oriented newspaper. He's oblivious to his lovely, "loving" wife's afternoon and evening sessions with a pickled puss lover (Kay Francis and Clive Brook). Kay asks Clive for 24 Hours (!) (they co-starred in a movie with that title in '31) to decide whether or not to run off to Europe with him. In a key scene one sees the revulsion for Bancroft's work ethic -- it has left her cold and unloving. Brook himself becomes a victim of Bancroft's paper and not to spoil the ending, I'll leave it there. It's an absorbing and well-performed drama. Francis registers well here, although the ending leaves us wondering whatever happened to her.
