Newsies 1992 91 PG 2.5 out of 5 ducks
In this musical, we have the orphans -- newsies -- of New York, who sell the newspapers on the street corner in 1899. When newspaper publishers (like Hearst, Pulitzer and others) decide to raise the price the newsies have to pay for the paper (which cuts into the boys' income). Inspired by the trolley strike in New York; Jack thinks if they strike, no one will deliver the papers (by getting the newsies for the other papers to also strike); the strike is on. Jack takes their demands to Pulitzer (their boss), and is thrown out. His pal David seems to be the brains of the outfit, though. Denton, a reporter, offers to cover their story. The publishers are annoyed, and call in the thugs to beat up the kids and end the strike. The Brooklyn newsies show up -- the roughest of the newsies folks -- and the kids beat up and sling-shot the strikebreaker guys. They end up locking up Jack in the debtors refuge, and Denton's story is canceled and reassigned to cover war stories. Pulitzer meets with Jack, who tries to buy him off to end the strike, and Jack to leave town; Jack sells out (since unlike David, he doesn't have a family to support him); Jack and David feud, but when David and his sister Sarah get jumped in an alley, Jack comes to their aid and they talk again. Jack reads Denton's article about his unpublished article, and Jack decides to lead the charge against child labor -- which Denton is against -- and Jack proposes they print their own newspaper to get the word out, and they print the news-paper secretly on one of Pulitzer's old printing presses. The people take to the streets, and Jack is again talking to Pulitzer -- this time. Outside, Jack and David tell the boys the strike is over -- they won, and the warden of the refuge is arrested. Teddy Roosevelt comes to town to thank Jack for bringing this matter to his attention; Jack decides not to leave, though, on the advice of Teddy, and comments he has family here (looking at David); Sarah walks over and kisses Jack.
