Audience Reviews for Five Star Final

  • May 31, 2020
    Before Orson Welles' Citizen Kane took a veiled shot at newspaper tabloid tycoon Willian Randolph Hearst director Mervyn LeRoy did the same with Five Star Final. LeRoy, Edward G. Robinson - with co-stars Marian Marsh and Aline MacMahon - deliver a powerful story of how the tabloid media ruins lives for profit. The final scene is powerful and a must-see.
