Deadline U.S.A. may well be the best Bogart film that most people have STILL not seen for themselves, so do yourself a favor before leaving for work Wednesday morning and make a point of setting your VCR or DVR or whatever electronic gadget you schedule your TV life with, and make a point of recording this film Tuesday afternoon at 4 p.m. on Turner Classic Movies, DirecTV 256.
I've probably seen this film about a dozen times by now and because I've seen all of Bogart's other films SO many more times, this is still one that surprises me with each new viewing as I find myself noticing things for the first time.
Do you know the difference between a journalist and a reporter?

I came across this short trailer for an upcoming PBS documentary called Stop the Presses: The American Newspaper in Peril while looking for something else a few weeks ago. It's already been shown in some TV markets but I don't recall it being in South Florida yet.
Hope it'll be as good as the one on the LA Times last year, even though that one started trailing off a bit towards the end, probably because there was no hero riding in on a white horse at the end -with $$$. If you don't blink, there's also a few seconds of Anders Gyllenhaal of the Herald speaking. It was uploaded on June 2nd.
