  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

  2. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    This one, with Fuller's "Park Row" (made the same year), are among the very best films ever made about journalism, which means about integrity. Bogart impresses but the rest of the cast is also really top notch. With Brooks everything looks easy : the fluid camera work, the stagging and framing, it has this classic flair and is immediatly readable. Add to his talent a good script and you'll have a forgotten classic.

  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    Richard Brooks started his career working as a journalist so he knows what he's talking about when he depicts a newsroom. The characters are extremely well written with a special mention for the two feminine parts played by Kim Hunter and Ethel Barrymore. I also liked a lot the end of the film which can be considered as a happy ending or, in the contrary, as a pessimist finale. Booze, smoke and Bogey: a winning trio.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    L'opposition entre le roi de la pègre, Thomas Rienzi, et Ed Hutcheson, rédacteur en chef intègre d'un quotidien sur le point d'être revendu à un magnat de la presse ..... Excellent !

  5. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    Deadline--USA was released during the Hollywood Blacklist when the fever of Anti-Communism ran roughshod over civil rights. Richard Brooks directed it as a defense of freedom of the press and a crime film which implicates the corruption of many public trusts. Humphrey Bogart carved a fine character as Ed Hutchinson, managing editor of The Day, a large city newspaper. Behind him

  6. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS ripped this off something rotten.

  7. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    Contrasted. Great qualities of image & supporting cast (Ed BEGLEY the underworld boss, Kim HUNTER the editor's ex-wife). But also lengths & speeches, slowing the rhythm & putting morals before action. === Contrasté. De grandes qualités d'image et des seconds rôles formidable (le boss Ed BEGLEY, l'ex-femme Kim HUNTER). Mais aussi longueurs & discours qui ralentissent le rythme & mettent la morale avant l'action.

  8. rllr's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    A newspaper shark with integrity walking around busily with his hands in his pockets; these are the 50s alright. Directed as tight as Bogie's return lines.

  9. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    The exemplar of newspaper movies.

  10. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Deadline - U.S.A.

    Humphrey Bogart is at his best in writer-director Richard Brooks' crackling newspaper drama. A taut, fast-paced crime story well worth seeking out for classic movie fans, even if the ending is a bit abrupt.
