Also known as The Big Carnival, Ace in the Hole is perhaps Billy Wilder's most corrosive and cynical look at American culture.

Kirk Douglas stars as a sleazebag reporter who hopes to jump-start his career by exploiting (and prolonging) the suffering of a miner trapped in a cave--a delirium of tabloid journalism. With Jan Sterling. (112 mins.)
