‘PoweR Girls’: Big PR Fallacies Hit The Small Screen

There's a scene in the 1957 film classic "Sweet Smell of
Success" in which press agent Sidney Falco (Tony Curtis) grabs the
telephone from his secretary and tries to explain to his
nightclub-owner client why he failed to get him any ink in the
latest item by J.J. Hunsecker (Burt Lancaster), an all-too-powerful
and pernicious newspaper columnist modeled after Walter
Winchell.
