"The Story on Page One"

I was reminded of this movie while watching a documentary about Rita Hayworth on TCM.

The movie was released in early 60ths starring Rita, Gig Young, and Anthony Francoise. It also has a wonderful performance by Mildred Dunnock has Gig Young's smothering mother.

Gig and Rita play the accused murders of Rita's abusive husband. Francoise plays Rita's attorney.

It has a great scrip and good acting yet I have never seen it on TV. I think it is one of Rita's better performances in her second career.

I had forgotten that this movie was directed by Clifford Odets who wrote "Waiting for Lefty". "Waiting for Lefty" was regarding as one of great plays of the Red Decade. I still like "Story on Page One".
