For my money this is the best film ever made about American journalism. James Stewart is a staff writer made cycnical over the years by the grubby sensationalism and shallow hackwork that fills most American newspapers. When he actually latches onto a case of genuine injustice it's an episode that transforms his life almost as much as that of the convict he's trying to free. This is certainly director Henry Hathaway's masterpiece and he has never been given sufficient credit for it. The straight-on realism he achieved filming on location in Chicago has rarely if ever been equalled in the American movies in my view, and no effort was made to clean up the untidy skeins of the story either as Hollywood was wont to do. For instance, nothing was done to free the man unjustly convicted along with Richard Conte's character, around whom the story revolves. If you were to make a list of Stewart's 4 or 5 greatest performances this would have to be on it. He uses methods both praiseworthy and ugly to get what he's after and no American movie actor ever brought home that kind of mixed morality better.

Call Northside 777 takes us to Chicago during the early 1930's Prohibition era. The narration throughout the film, especially at the beginning, gives the viewer a vivid feel for the setting of the film.
The murder of a city police officer sends Frank Wiecek (Richard Conte) and an accomplice to a 99-year prison sentence. More than a decade later, Chicago Times editor Brian Kelly (Lee J. Cobb) notices a classified ad in his paper, offering a $5000 reward for information about the "real" killer(s) of the police officer. Assigned to investigate is reporter P.J. McNeal (James Stewart.)
As the film progresses, McNeal's initial sure feelings about Wiecek's guilt become blurred. The headstrong McNeal seemingly does more work on the case in a week than the corrupt police department, seeking a quick conviction and closure of the case, ever did in 1932.
McNeal responds to the ad, placed by Wiecek's mother, Tillie Wiecek, who works as a floor scrubber at Chicago's Wrigley Building. Ms. Wiecek emphatically pleads her son's innocence. A still unconvinced McNeal warns her about scam artists who may try to fraudulently obtain the reward money.
The film heats up as McNeal becomes engrossed in the case. A series of newspaper articles about Wiecek's proclaimed innocence lights up the switchboard at the paper, in support of McNeal's work. Given the positive response, Editor Kelly orders McNeal to stick with it.
A key point in the story is McNeal's legwork in locating witness and store owner Wanda Skutnik, whose testimony helped to send Wiecek up the river.
This film introduces a couple of new technologies of the time.

Excellent movie - Jimmy Stewart at his best. The transition of Stewart as a reporter going from skeptical to a believer in the innocence of the convicted murderer and the resolve to see justice carried out through over all odds - including a flawed legal system.

I am a big fan of film noir and own many dvds in the Fox series. This is a great addition to my collection. I was very pleased with the service I received with the film arriving on time and in great shape. I will definitely use this vendor again.

Call Northside 777 is an under-appreciated Jimmy Stewart movie. It casts Stewart as an investigative reporter who tenaciously investigates an old murder for which an innocent man has been imprisoned. The script is very good and so is the supporting cast, including Lee J. Cobb as the newspaper editor who starts Stewart on the case. If you like Jimmy Stewart, or even if you just like good movies, see Call Northside 777. It is an excellent example of the Golden Age of movies when there were so many good movies made that some very good ones -- like this one -- unfortunately, have been somewhat overlooked.
