PARIS HERALD: The Incredible Newspaper

A nostalgic portrait of the first American paper in Paris, the toy of unpredictable James Gordon Bennett, at first a liability, later a money-maker and famous. How it was started, the irregular, carefree development, the incidents that marked its career, its various owners after Bennett's death, the roster of well known international correspondents and writers it produced, the various periods through which it lived. A roll call too of the headline news of those days, of the thirst emporiums, eating places and night spots, celebrities, and the way in which the Herald covered them. An oddity in newspaper history, the Herald's career is adequately, not brilliantly, handled.
