Fun Size Review: The Power of the Press (1928)

power of the press

One of the earliest Frank Capra movies that is really a Frank Capra movie. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (still a teen at the time) is a cub reporter who must solve a murder, romance a girl, expose political corruption and win his job back. He also has a thing or two to learn about journalistic ethics and car chases. One of the most enjoyable films of the late silent era with both director and star showcasing their considerable talents.

If it were a dessert it would be:



Chocolate Pistachio Mini Cream Pies. It’s not epic but the flavor combination is classic and most everyone will love it.

  1. Sounds interesting and fun.

    They sure made good looking movie posters back then.

    1. Yes, much better than the one-size-fits-all stuff today (though there are some wonderful exception)
