The Sound of Fury ★★★

Strange combination of some pretty perfunctory acting jumbled up with an intriguing take on the Newspapers and a mob mentality. It was a standard descent into crime for Frank Lovejoy's character, who never really held enough interest to be the centre of the film. Upstaged by Lloyd Bridges, in a charismatic but over the top turn

It all got really clunky with some class moralizing monologues - especially from the visiting Genius scientist - as literally the voice of reason, explaining to the remarkably malleable Newspaper men that they'd made a horrible mistake.

Sort of interesting take on the moral duty of media to cover news responsibly - still a fair point nearly seventy years later.
