The last part of the movie cycle of the film historian Alice Aronová is situated in a journalistic setting of Chicago in the 1920´s, to the times when Billy Wilder himself worked as an active journalist. A charming retro-story The Front Page (USA 1974, 105 min.) was based on a famous theatre play of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur. Starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, the movie aptly describes the golden age of journalist craftsmanship. In original (English) with Czech subtitles.
