The reviews varied


January 16, 1952 - Scandal Sheet is released (New York City).

Scandal Sheet is a 1952 American film noir directed by Phil Karlson. The film is based on the novel The Dark Page by Samuel Fuller, who himself was a newspaper reporter before his career in film. The drama features Broderick Crawford, Donna Reed, and John Derek.


Bosley Crowther of the New York Times lambasted the film and cast. He commented that "Donna Reed watches on with dull disfavor as a Vassar girl who has stumbled into a tabloid job."
