Back in Old Hollywood, newspaper pictures were comedies that made up a huge part of the market—1934’s It Happened One Night, 1940’s His Girl Friday, 1940’s The Philadelphia Story, all remain incredibly revered and much-lauded pictures from a bygone era. All these decades later, newspaper pictures endure in a much different capacity. Instead of comedy, they’ve transitioned to drama.

Today, especially in a time where true crime stories are so prevalent, newspaper dramas typically lean more toward based-on-a-true-story plots instead of coming up with new or fresh ideas. Still, it doesn’t matter—there are quite a few newspaper dramas worth talking about. We’ve compiled the five best ones.
