Ace in the Hole

Wilder's World
(NR) USA – 1 hr 51 min
1951 · d. Billy Wilder   Reviews
Starring Kirk Douglas, Jan Sterling, Porter Hall

When washed-up boozehound newsman Chuck Tatum (Kirk Douglas) happens on a miner trapped in a cave, he sees his chance to get back on top, delaying rescue efforts and whipping up a media circus. Ill-received by the American press (surprise surprise), Wilder’s satire of media sensationalism has been reappraised as one of his best—and most prophetic.
