Big News is the 1929 classic sound film about crime and city life. Steve Banks (Robert Armstrong) is a newspaper reporter who turns to alcohol when he is down on his luck. As his career flounders, he gets embroiled in the seedy underworld of the city, turning to a life of theft and violence. The only person left who is propping up Banks is the loyal Mrs. Banks (Carol Lombard). In the midst of his sad decline, he is then accused of a murder that he did not commit. It is up to him to pull himself together, uncover the true murderer, and clear his formerly good name. The true significance of the film is that it features a very young Carol Lombard, before she added an "e" to her first name and before she became a star. Watch Big News to explore the early stages of filmmaking and witness the beginning of the industry.
