Ace in the Hole

Directed by Billy Wilder, 1951, US, b&w, 111 minutes. Shown with English subtitles.

Although released in 1951, “Ace in the Hole” presents a dark, cynical vision of American media that feels astonishingly contemporary in its lust for sensationalism. Billy Wilder’s film stars Kirk Douglas in a fiercely intense performance as a reporter who will do anything to exploit the big story and lurid headlines.
