The Front Page on


The press room of Chicago’s Criminal Courts Building is buzzing with reporters covering the story of an escaped prisoner. When star reporter Hildy Johnson accidentally discovers the runaway convict, he and his editor Walter Burns conspire to hide the man from the other reporters, while they chase the biggest scoop of their careers.
