ABOUT THE FILM: 

A cave collapse in New Mexico traps a man, and all eyes turn toward the tragedy… including those of Charles “Chuck” Tatum (Kirk Douglas), a washed-up newspaper reporter who sees the incident as a ticket back to his former days at the top of the journalism heap. As the media circus begins to swirl around the trapped man’s plight, Tatum takes command of the situation, embellishing the unfolding drama and prolonging the rescue effort while feeding stories to the nation’s reporters clamoring to cover the event. Celebrated director Billy Wilder mixes gritty cynicism with a superb cast – Douglas, Jan Sterling, Robert Arthur, Frank Cady – in this powerful, fascinating study of the dark side of the human soul.
