"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.

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.

HASH(0x9f678e10) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9fe728d0) out of 5 stars -30- has some moments but the "drama" falls flat June 8 2013
By John Siuntres - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The best part of this film in the real behind the scenes leg work, manpower and technology that was used to create newspapers in the pre- digital era, including the use of what now would be described as a fax machine which transmitted photos via wire. The film is a great showcase for many solid character actors of the era, especially William Conrad who clearly enjoys himself in his role. but the 2 major dramatic plots are disappointing. Still if you enjoy Jack Webb's acting, this is a decent movie.

HASH(0x9f68f804) out of 5 stars I am a little shocked, but it's all for a good reason. July 10 2015

Okay. Most people would take one look at this and say, "Oh it's got Jack Webb in it; he's probably just as unemotional in this as he was in Dragnet and that's gonna drag down the whole picture." Honestly, I was a little concerned, even though I have enjoyed other Webb driven films like The D. I. and Pete Kelley's Blues, but 30 was blessed of a great cast, an engaging plot, and a surprising stab at emotion driven acting by Jack Webb that honestly had me in tears there at the end.
There are several stories to follow along with in this film, the setting is a newspaper office after all. Each one makes you care about it, a lot, and I must say, this is one of the best movies I've seen in a while. I also enjoyed the heck out of every scene involving William Conrad, who seemed to give Webb someone to have a great ball of fun with. Even alone, Conrad was a joy to watch with all his caustic comments and sarcastic attitude. He even managed to deliver the greatest speech defending journalism that I've ever heard.
Great film, worth the buy.
