Ace in the Hole, His Gal Friday, The Front Page and – 30 – are some of my favorites, and Keith Roysdon, a veteran newspaper reporter, mentions them and other films in his piece on newspaper crime films for CrimeReads.com.
As Roysdon notes in his piece, newspapers and crime are a natural fit for film.
