Billy Wilder's acid media satire forever branded him the sometimes overstated label of "cynic." Ace in the Hole was too acerbic for 1951 movie-goers and reviled on its release. It has since garnered critical acclaim and a cult following.
Unscrupulous reporter Chuck Tatum (Kirk Douglas) delays the rescue of a man trapped in an ancient Indian mine to grab a big story, literally creating a media circus. Tatum, the sheriff, and even the man's wife (Jan Sterling) are out to make a buck from his misfortune.
