    Wilder made two great films when he teamed up with Diamond, and then his career took a slide, and this is one that is good, but not up to Wilder's usual standards. There are the crude sex jokes Wilder felt he needed to put in, as Mel Brooks type humor was popular at the time. Additionally, the language is crass. True, films of the era were getting that way, but Wilder's great films didn't need that to be classics, which THE FRONT PAGE is unfortunately not. The performances of the two leads are marvelous (especially Matthau), but overall, both men have made better pictures. Spend your time elsewhere.

    65/100. Although this is the least effective of the three filmed versions of this story, it is still good. You can't go wrong with the Billy Wilder/Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau combination. Carol Burnett, as much as I like her, was a disappointment and over does it a bit. Austin Pendleton and Jack Lemmon come off best in the cast. Fair art direction and feel for the period. You can't really go too wrong with a great story like this one.
