Great story about an obnoxious, sleazy reporter, who was, well, pretty sleazy and obnoxious (trying not to spoil it here) and superbly acted by Kirk Douglas. Pretty biting commentary on the media. I'd rate it higher except for some required suspension of disbelief concerning his getting away with his scheme so easily for so long, and the ridiculous circus (literally) that it became.

Kirk Douglas plays a super asshole. Jan Sterling plays a lazily written idiot asshole. The script is effective in it's cynicism (which I can appreciate) but is super contrived (which I can't). Still despite it's obvious flaws I found it quite compelling.

Perhaps the true power of this film lies not in its prescient criticisms of the press, greed and disaster tourists, or its noirish characterizations, all factors certainly adding value, but it on the whole being a tragedy of the commons; an ecosystem borne, revolving, surviving and thriving around one life source that is the non-incidental treasure hunter.

A scathing criticism of sensationalism amidst journalism and the media circus (literally here) that can arise from it, told wonderfully in this condensed, yet still grand tale. What makes this so watchable is trying to decipher Tatum's true motivations, who is performed excellently by Douglas in one of the most alpha male roles I've ever seen.

Unrelentingly cynical. Man gets trapped in cave, everyone acts poorly. Kirk Douglas plays a reporter who sees a big story that will return him to past glories. Jan Sterling as the victim’s wife is straight out of film noir, bad and spiteful. The masses are spectacle-seeking sheep. Local entrepreneurs see a chance for a quick buck. It bombed at the box office ... apparently audiences didn’t want to pay to find out they were idiots.
