  • "Charles Tatum es un periodista sin escrúpulos que atraviesa una mala racha a causa de su adicción al alcohol, y que se ha visto obligado a trabajar en un pequeño diario de Nuevo México. Cuando un minero indio se queda atrapado en un túnel, Tatum ve la oportunidad de volver a ser alguien en el mundo del periodismo dando espectacularidad al caso y alargando el rescate en connivencia con el sheriff de la localidad."
  • "Charles Tatum, journaliste sans scrupules, va exploiter un scoop. Au Nouveau-Mexique, Léo Minosa, un Indien, est coincé au fond d'une galerie effondrée. S'arrangeant pour être le seul journaliste sur le coup, Tatum va persuader le shérif de choisir la formule de sauvetage la plus lente. Tatum va devenir l'amant de la femme de la victime et poussera l'hypocrisie jusqu'à devenir l'ami de Léo."
  • ""A cave collapse traps a man, and all eyes turn toward the tragedy-- including those of Charles "Chuck" Tatum, a washed-up newspaper reporter who sees the incident as a ticket back to the top of the journalism heap. As a media circus begins to swirl around the trapped man and his plight, Tatum takes command of the situation, embellishing on the unfolding drama and prolonging the rescue effort-- while feeding stories to the numerous reporters clamouring to cover the event"--Container."
  • "An early look at the impact of mass media in the public arena, featuring the story of a cynical and manipulative journalist."

  • "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 and milks it for all it is worth."

  • "One of the most scathing indictments of American culture ever produced by a Hollywood filmmaker. An amoral newspaper reporter washes up in dead-end Albuquerque, happens upon the scoop of a lifetime, and will do anything to keep getting the lurid headlines."@en
  • "The Ace in the Hole, in this case, is Leo Minosa, trapped in a cliff dwelling near Albuquerque, N.M. The publicity from his situation could build a winning hand for several people: Chuck Tatum, manipulative veteran newsman; Lorraine, his bored wife who dreams of city lights; Sheriff Gus Kretzer, boosting his re-election campaign; and young Herbie, a reporter who wants to make the big leagues. In 1951, there was no 24-hour cable news, and the Albuquerque paper was not on the Internet. The modern media age, however, was dawning. A veritable carnival sets up at the rescue scene, which may be one of the sources of the term "media circus.""@en
