Nervous Breakdown

By Gordon Hopkins

Nearly every movie that focuses on the newspaper biz has, at some point, that scene where the editor or publisher or whoever must decide whether or not to print that important story that will make or break the paper. They always do, of course. When the editor announces “run it!” or something comparable, some guy in the printing room hits that big button and the press rumbles to life. The camera follows the path of the paper, as hundreds of copies of that all-important edition go flying by on what looks kinda like a newspaper roller coaster.Funny how those movies never show what happens if you press the button and nothing...
