Kirk Douglas plays a frustrated former big-city journalist and self-centered heel (and does so very well) who is now stuck working for an Albuquerque newspaper. He exploits a story about a man trapped in a cave to re-jump start his career, but the situation quickly escalates into an out-of-control circus.
A powerful toasting of the media of the day. Imagine what this would have been like in the age of television.
