Five Star Final
Dir. Mervyn LeRoy (1931).
Tabloid filmmaking meets tab journalism in this 1931 terminally hard-boiled Warner Bros. production, the peoples studio at its best. Taking a break from gangster roles, a convincingly cynical Edward G. Robinson stars as a self-loathing editor chained to the scummiest of newspapers.
