IT TAKES A WISE GUY TO GET THE TRUTH

Star reporter Hildy Johnson has had it with the newspaper business – until he finds himself harbouring a death row escapee with a tale to tell. Hildy’s challenge now is to outwit corrupt cops and rival journalists to get the scoop of a lifetime – without losing the love of his life.

Written by two former Chicago reporters, this twentieth-century classic is a powerful and timely drama of civic corruption and journalistic truth-telling.
