The Front Page

A film by Billy Wilder
Starring Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau

Hildy Johnson (Jack Lemmon) is the top reporter of a Chicago newspaper during the 1920s. Tired of the racket, he’s determined to quit his job and get married, but his scheming editor (Walter Matthau) has other plans. It’s the day before murderer Earl Williams is due for execution, and Burns tempts Johnson to stay and write the story. The comedic duo of Lemmon and Matthau are in top form here.
