Newsies is Disney's 1992 return to that rarest form of film the live-action musical. With original music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman the music tells the story of the 1899 New York City newsboy rebellion against newspaper kings William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. The film was dead on arrival and played in some lucky local cinemas for two weeks. This was sad news considering that it could have been the beginning of a whole new musical generation. The music of Newsies has since gained a following and has a timeless appeal joining the roots of a great Broadway musical while attempting to fit the songs to their era. Despite the 1990s production we are expected to believe the songs might have been sung by newsboys in the 1890s. We don't of course -- the songs are too elaborate and pop driven (it is also likely that a newsboy who was more melodic than a hum or whistle would have been put in his place if the newsies are as rough as this film would have us believe).
