Audience Reviews for Roar of the Press

Riding on the fumes of Howard Hawks popular His Girl Friday (only one year before), this Wallace Ford starring feature (and they don't come too often) is about a newlywed reporter trying to reform his errant bachelor reporter ways and go honeymoon with his bride, if his managing editor will get off of his back about skunking out a spy ring operation story first. Will he ever get to his honeymoon? Expect lots of 40's lingo delivered on the quick.
