Park Row

In 1880s New York, a dedicated journalist starts a new newspaper despite opposition from larger organizations, a drama film.

Not quite autobiographical, since Fuller's part would have been that of the kid. However this film espouses the dream of the American Press with honesty and integrity. Once upon a time all reporters had similar goals of getting the truth out and being very independent of thought. ~Mike
