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.
