Front Page Woman

As the title indicates, this is a newspaper yarn and a completely screwy one. Lacks authenticity and is so far fetched it'll hand newsscribes around the country a constant run of ripples. But it's light and has some funny lines and situations [from a story by Richard Macauley].

George Brent and Bette Davis are working for opposition papers. They’re in love but always trying to outdo each other on stories. They keep topping each other on one story or another for the entire length of the film and then clinch in a truce.

But there are some laughs. And there are grand performances by Davis, Brent, Winifred Shaw and Joseph Crehan. And nice bit work by Roscoe Karns, J. Farrell MacDonald, Addison Richards, Walter Walker, Dorothy Dare, June Martel and Mike Morita.
