Description by OLDIES.com:

Yellow journalism is not exactly new, as this 1932 sendup of a keyhole-peeping columnist proves. Early Hollywood bad boy Lee Tracy (who created the Hildy Johnson role for The Front Page on Broadway) portrays raspy Alvin Roberts, whose zest for unearthing short marriage-to-maternity spans among Broadway's notables lifts him from lowly clerk to tabloid king. Once on top, he's convinced that no one is exempt from his poison pen. But there are some pinstriped types in town who intend to prove him dead wrong.
