When speaking of the great old time directors Billy Wilder is often one of the first names thrown out there. After all, he created some of the most famous and most widely renowned films of Hollywood's bygone era - from Some Like it Hot, to Double Indemnity and, even, to something like The Apartment. Rarely mentioned among those classics is the 1951 drama Ace in the Hole.

This is one of my favourite Billy Wilder movies. Kirk Douglas was superb as cynical newspaper reporter Chuck Tatum and Jan Sterling was just magnificent as unfaithful wife Lorraine Minosa. The impressive supporting cast includes Ray Teal, Porter Hall, Bob Arthur and Richard Benedict. Charles "Chuck" Tatum (Kirk Douglas) is a down on his luck unscrupulous New York reporter fired from various papers... read more

Description: Charles Tatum, a down-on-his-luck reporter, takes a job with a small New Mexico newspaper. The job is pretty boring until he finds a man trapped in a mine. He jumps at the chance to make a name for himself by taking over and prolonging the rescue effort, and feeding stories to major newspapers. He creates a national media sensation an ... (more)

"Douglas on huikea röyhkeänä reporterina, joka tekee kaiken saadakseen yhden miehen onnettumuudesta maan suurimman uutisen aikaiseksi. Lopussa aletaan menemään kohti ihmismielen pimeitä puolia ja moraalinen puoli alkaa tulemaan esiin. Edelleen ajankohtainen elokuva on Wilderin parhaimmistoa."

"Kirk Douglas is a cocky and frustrated journalist by the name of Chuck Tatum who smells money when a man gets trapped inside a mine. By spewing out bogus engineering, he makes the rescue of the poor man to become more complicated, and time consuming than needed. Meanwhile, it becomes an amazing news item, something that makes Tatum the best known reporter in the country. A great movie by director Billy Wilder with Douglas on top form as a nasty piece of work who manipulates everything for his ow"
