Extra! Extra! Laugh all about it! Bette Davis and George Brent star in this comic battle of the sexes filled with good-natured rivalry and romance. Reporters Ellen Garfield (Davis) and Curt Devlin (Brent) are very much in love, but working at competing newspapers. Curt's not willing to concede that a woman can sniff out news as well as a man, and Ellen refuses to marry him until he does. But a nearby apartment fire and a mysterious murder will soon test their investigative skills...and their feelings for each other. Hungarian-born director Michael Curtiz would go on to become one of the most prolific filmmakers of all time, helming more than 170 movies in Europe and the United States. He was nominated for the Best Director Academy Award® twice in the same year (1938) and won the Oscar® five years later for Casablanca.
