  1. A great historical film. How far the USA has fallen from the days of investigative journalism to today's Operation Mockingbird.

  2. Claim you're not a reporter of the news but a crusader and it becomes just fine to alter the news, alter the truth if it advances 'The Cause. It's the plague of our day in the media of all kinds

  3. There is an obscure, rare whatever Humphrey Bogart flick that used to be shown on the defunct analog television system regularly. And that is 'Knock On Any Door' circa 1949 co starring John Derek and directed by Nicholas Ray. Is it because of certain infringements that's preventing it from being shown here ? I don't think I've ever seen it shown on TCM or AMC.

  4. Yes it's a damn shame newspapers are not like the one in this movie. And reporters are not more like the character that Humphrey Bogart portrayed – ALSO – THE NEWSPAPERS OF TODAY ARE NOT WORTH THE PAPER WE ALL WIPE OUR ASS WITH LIKE THE NEW YORK TIMES IN 2017/18 & THE REPORTERS ON NEWSPAPER BUT EVEN MORE TV REPORTERS ON MAINSTREAM ARE AS MUCH THE SAME TRASH AS NEWSPAPER REPORTERS

  5. Beautiful, crisp print with not a speck of dust on it. Fast paced, not a slow minute in the whole picture. Held my interest from start to finish. Bogie at his best.

  6. Great demonstration of Bogart's incomparable screen presence. By this time he may have been the greatest and most accomplished contemporary leading actor in film. And he still had his greatest scene and one of the greatest in film history to come (The Caine Mutiny) in 1954.

  7. Thank you for this GREAT Bogart movie. It would be amazing if our media stood for what Bogart's paper did…but our fascist America is waiting (unknown to the 98% blind and deaf citizens) to crumble as all other empires…the fall will come soon and who knows, maybe out of the ashes arises a longer lasting Republic…otherwise it will be worse and rest of world will treat us as we have been treating them…with genocide, slavery, warmongering, etc.

  8. A prequel to the modern age of Fake News. BTW Bogey was also a great songwriter and penned many number 1 hits of the 50s and 60s.

  9. Wow! What a timely film. It was a dud back in 1952 but this was excellent. Probably because all the media in the USA is now owned by USA basically six corporations. This was way ahead of it's time for anyone in 1952 to understand.

  10. Great, but seldom seen, Bogart film. Thank you.
    Next on your list of great "Newsroom films" shoudl be -30- with Jack Web.

  11. A superb film. Humphrey Bogart at his absolute best. The supporting cast is wonderful. One of the best newspaper films.

  12. Fans of Kim Hunter who have not seen it, will greatly enjoy one of the masterpieces of the cinema, Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger's remarkable film "A Matter of Life and Death" (1946), also posted at YouTube (and which has recently been completely restored from the original three-strip Technicolor negatives).

  13. Terrific movie and serendipitous in it timeliness for 2018 when a scurrilous gang is attempting to abridge the freedom of the press. A nation deprived of the truth is already in chains.

  14. I love Bogie! This was a great movie & showed Bogie as the versatile actor he was, not just as the typecast as the tough guy gangsta. He was still tough in this movie, but with a little bit of a compassionate edge. Bogie didnt take shit a/b his women. Love the way he told his divorced wife she was still his wife & she was not going to marry the guy she was engaged to. Like her, I would melt and be like, "Yes, Bogie, whatever you say, Baby"! Haha!
    The power of Bogie.
    Here's lookin' at you, Dude!

  15. Je regarde Humphrey Bogart, pour me souvenir des années de ma jeunesse, j'aime le scénario de Humphrey Bogart.

  16. The other day I heard someone say a slang word we used to say back in the day in honor of Bogey:…….
    "he was "Bogartin'" his way through the door" meaning someone being tough, forcing his way in without fear, takin' no shit & being gangsta like our man Bogey.
    Bogey was the original Mack!

  17. Bogey made an abundance of movies for RKO, WarnerBros & MGM. in the 40s, 50s. Actors were inder contract and had to do whaever the studio demanded them, which included being told what parts they would play, how many movies they would make per year, being lonned out to other studios, etc Bogey was a top star at MGM & a big box office draw, so he made many movies for them. Bogey didnt like the way MGM was treatong their stars like slaves to their contracts & was mobilizing other stars to demand changes, when he fell ill to throat cancer
