Behind the Curtain: The October Newspaper Movie of the Month

Updated 10/1/2021 6:05 PM

'Born Yesterday' (1993)

This is a remake of the 1950 original and stars Don Johnson as a newspaper reporter hired by a corrupt millionaire (played by John Goodman) to "smarten up" his showgirl girlfriend (played by Melanie Griffith). One interesting sidelight: Legendary Washington Post muckraking editor Ben Bradlee makes a debut as an actor in a small role as the Secretary of the Navy. It's available on Blu-ray and DVD and several livestream platforms.
