Format: VHS Tape
"Night and the City" "Dragnet" even "Deadline USA"(the Bogart film) this is a somewhat overblown "Real Life" look at the lives of the people that make up a big city newspaper from the era when even women,were called newspaper men.What these people have to go through to get the news out,how it effects their lives.It attempts to give insight to the personal lives of these people as well.Jack webb the editor who is strapped with a V.I.P tour during a hot news day.His loving but world worn wife,played by Meredith Baxter's real life Mom(look her name up in the credits good trivia),William Conrad as the cynical reporter who is trying to turn copy boy David(Ozzie's kid)Nelson in to a newspaper man and a solid who's who of character people,who will grab you in, keep you going, and let down softly at the end.I never get tired of watching this one from the first time I saw it in a theater. You'll remember this one too I think It'll kinda get to you,a little,and might make you smile.

Format: VHS Tape
If you want to see some very famous stars at an early age this is the movie for you. Jack Webb is more human than his Joe Friday, William Conrad is excellent as the city desk editor. This movie is loaded with "future stars" giving a top notch performance. The plot is a little clunky, but the actors really make the movie. This is one for everyones tape library. This movie is seldom seen on tv.

The Best of Jack Webb April 24 2011
By Delta195 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Jack Webb at his finest! Jack Webb delivers one of his best roles that both fascinates and brings out the man behind the newspaper business first hand.
Also starring William Conrad(Cannon)and Joe Flynn (McHale's Navy) and Richard Deacon (The Dick Van Dyke Show), and other all star...stars of their day to bring to the audience not only what a newspaper goes through, but also the heart wrenching things that they have to report on.
Once you see this movie, you will want to take it out four to five times a year to experience the moments only veterans actors can give that will move you.

I pre-judged, reluctantly watched, and was so surprised! Jan. 31 2012
By Ohioan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I grew up watching the leads playing much different characters on television. This movie defied every notion I had of the actors and the newsroom formula film. It was surprising in its building of plot and characters. It was light-weight, almost comedic at times, heartbreaking and human at others. From Webb's upbeat character who is happily married but still haunted by the loss of a wife and child...to the senior writer who waits for news of her pilot grandson, the movie is build on real emotions and characters. The at times silly rapport of a team of co-workers is balanced with the tension and sorrow of the news they must cover. It doesn't matter they are shown working against the clock, pecking away at their typewriters and cutting and pasting their page, the movie is timeless. There is a real- time feel to the film. I really, really liked it.

"Just the Clichés, Ma'am" March 9 2014
By Scott T. Rivers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Hilarious camp classic from producer-director-star Jack Webb, who takes the "Dragnet" approach to daily newspaper life. When David Nelson appears as a bongo-playing copy boy, "-30-" loses any shred of credibility. At least Webb is more animated than usual. William Conrad chomps the scenery with gusto as the city editor. Never boring, never remotely believable.
