SMASH PICTURES! by Robert Van Gelder

Excellent, from the vocational angle, and a better integrated story, on the whole than its predecessor, Front Page. But still the tail wags the dog, and the details of the job of news photographer dominate the story and throw it out of line, frequently. The first half speeds along, then the last half gives the impression of being episodic, for the sake of including all sides of the work. However, it is a definite contribution to the journalistic career shelf.
