Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Back in the days when Rupert was only a bear in Fleet Street and British newspapers engaged in rivalries that were almost gentlemanly compared with today, editor Jack Hawkins has to choose between his job and his marriage to Elizabeth Allan, who sits at home and wonders where it all went wrong. Cosily dated, but an interesting sign of its times.
