Reporter comes back to his small-town newspaper job after the war. Unexpectedly inheriting the editor's chair when the owner dies, he has to fight for freedom of the press amidst pervasive corruption.
Interesting if somewhat didactic film about post-war issues. Suffers a bit, like other films of this ilk (The Titfield Thunderbolt is a good example) in that the villains are truly awful but don't get a satisfying comeuppance. Still, good performances and some wise things to say. Wooland's character remarks "No one cares who run things. A few cheap laughs and no responsibilities are all they want." Look at your politicians, no matter where you are, and you can't deny the truth of that statement.
