Part of our "The Fourth Estate" Film + Conversation series
In 2019, the Denver Film Society will present a series of films and talks examining the state of journalism, as it intersects with changing business models, social power structures, modern technology, and governmental shifts. Join us for this unprecedented series as we screen the best in journalistic cinema, and invite industry leaders of Colorado and beyond for post-film conversations to address some of the most pressing issues facing the Fourth Estate today.

In this twist on Hecht’s “The Front Page,” Howard Hawkes casts Cary Grant as the scheming editor who must try to keep his ex-wife and star reporter (Rosalind Russell) from quitting her job and marrying another man, all while a hot story about a man on death row unfolds before them. Romance and comedic sparks fly fast and to great effect in this classic.

The next generation of Colorado journalists: Colleges and universities are the training ground for the next generation of reporters, and Colorado is fortunate to have some fantastic programs. Meet teachers and students from some of the state’s leading journalism schools, and hear about their experiences and the trails they hope to blaze.

Cinematographer: Joseph Walker | Screenwriter: Charles Lederer BASED ON THE PLAY BY Ben Hecht, Charles MacArthur
Cast: Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy
