More Information about The Front Page
The Front Page was written by two former Chicago newspaper reporters, Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur. It has been revived on Broadway before and adapted for film several times.
Hildy Johnson, a star reporter, has decided to leave the newspaper business to pursue a career in advertising. He goes to the Chicago Courts press room to say goodbye to his fellow reporters, who are waiting to see Earl Williams, who was convicted of killing a police officer, hanged.
Williams escapes, and the other reporters try to find him. Hildy is left alone, and Williams enters the room and professes his innocence. Hildy decides to stay on as a reporter to cover the story. The play is well known for its comedic dialogue.
