Ace in the Hole (1951): review- 9/10

Down on his luck, again sacked from a major paper, an out-of-work reporter finds himself working for a small newspaper in sleepy Albuqurque.

This story is about his return to prominence, media manipulation and the ethics of news management.

Told with wit, it contains excellent performances and observations with beautiful camerawork, lending it the mood of a film noir.
