Movie Info

Slightly reminiscent of Frank Capra's Platinum Blonde (31), this screwball comedy features those two stalwarts of 1930s comedies: The brash reporter and the giddy heiress. Tyrone Power is the reporter, who makes his living writing about the foibles of the idle rich. His special target is heiress Loretta Young, the daughter of an influential financier (Dudley Digges). Young gets even by announcing her engagement to Power; now it's his turn to have his every movement scrutinized by the Public. Both reporter and heiress connive to embarrass one another, but (as expected) they're headed for the altar at fadeout time. Love is News was remade in 1949 as That Wonderful Urge, with Tyrone Power reprising his role and Gene Tierney in the Loretta Young part.more

Capra's It Happened One Night might've got the everyman reporter chasing the rich heiress trope going but it was by no means a done deal. In this version Tyrone Power is the reporter, Loretta Young the Kardashian. It's kind've a fun romp too.

Although it's predictable and silly, I enjoyed this movie. It has some really funny scenes and good actors.

Love is News is a charming and breezy little comedy with Ty and Loretta competing for who is the most beautiful. They play off each other very well and are supported by a top notch cast with Don Ameche and George Sanders standing out.
