Part of Weekend Classics: Politics in B&W.
The black-and-white of the newspaper page subs for the color palate of our final film, the artful retelling of Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s Watergate investigation, presented in a shiny new restoration just in time for its 40th anniversary. This important chapter of modern American history is brought to the screen as a faithful adaptation of Woodward and Bernstein's book chronicling the investigative reporting behind their Pulitzer-prize-winning coverage that changed the face of American politics and redefined the American presidency. Starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman.
"Newspapers and newspapermen have long been favorite subjects for movie makers—a surprising number of whom are former newspapermen, yet not until ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN...has any film come remotely close to being an accurate picture of American journalism at its best." —Vincent Canby, The New York Times (Apr 8, 1976)
