“Dark, funny, ferocious” –Christian Science Monitor
Based on a real story from the 1920s, Billy Wilder’s Made in New Mexico film follows Chuck Tatum (Kirk Douglas), a big-town reporter who’s down on his luck when he learns of a miner trapped in a cave-in. Realizing the incident could be headline-grabbing news, he manipulates the rescue’ creating a carnival-like atmosphere. (U.S., 1951, 111m, digital)
