Description by OLDIES.com:

EXTRA! SEE ALL ABOUT IT! From The Front Page to All the President's Men to State of Play, movies have long found a newspaper office to be a lively source of colorful characters and human drama. It's ideal for the brisk style of Jack Webb ("Dragnet") - a world Webb explores in a film taking its title from the "-30-" reporters place at the end of a story. In -30-, newshounds race against the clock to fill the empty page with stories that will become part of America's next morning alongside a cup of coffee. Webb leads the way, playing the night editor of a big-city paper whose staff includes William Conrad, David Nelson, Joe Flynn and Richard Deacon. From 3 PM till midnight, they'll ride the adrenaline rush of dramas that shape the world and their own lives. Come next day, they'll gladly do it again. -30-

Product Description:

The job of a newspaperman was never as hectic as in this hard-hitting drama. Sam Gatlin (Jack Webb) struggles through a difficult home life while making ends meet as the managing editor for a Los Angeles publication. This particular day he argues with his wife about adopting a child while a girl who chases after her dog falls into the sewer. Beyond that, the Air Force, attempting to break a speed record, crash a plane, killing the relative of one of Gatlin's co-workers. Gambling over the sex of children born to movie stars and mistreatment of copy boys also runs rampant in the office. Jack Webb also directed this film which was not appreciated by the journalism community upon its release in 1959.
