About

Screenwriter Ben Hecht's memories of his internship on a busy Chicago newspaper make for strangely uninvolving viewing, although the film is notable for the debut performances of both Bridges as the cub reporter who learns his trade on the Chicago Journal and Kidder as the prostitute who he inspires to mend her wicked ways.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: George Kennedy, Hume Cronyn, Brian Keith, Melina Mercouri, Beau Bridges, Margot Kidder
  • Director: Norman Jewison
  • Writer: Abram S Ginnes
  • Producer: Norman Jewison, M Halliwell
  • Photographer: Richard H Kline

In a nutshell

Regrettably, a silly script and some contrived comedy serve to highlight this as one of Jewison's weaker efforts.
