Fri­day ALL THE PRES­I­DENT’S MEN GEM, Fri­day, 10.45pm, M ( 1976)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

Stun­ning adap­ta­tion of the Bob Wood­ward and Carl Bern­stein book on the Water­gate scan­dal. Robert Red­ford and Dustin Hoff­man are top- notch as the two young Wash­ing­ton Post re­porters who come across the story of a life­time. Call­ing on the in­no­va­tive eye of cin­e­matog­ra­pher Gor­don Wil­lis ( The God­fa­ther), di­rec­tor Alan J. Pakula brings the press world alive with to­tal re­al­ism, mak­ing the pro­fes­sion of news- get­ting seem ex­cit­ing and, above all, vi­tal. A su­perb cast ( in­clud­ing an Os­car- win­ning Ja­son Ro­bards) and lots of sub­tle hu­mour, cour­tesy of scriptwriter Wil­liam Gold­man, make this one of the best po­lit­i­cal thrillers ever made.

On the case: Dustin Hoff­man, left, and Robert Red­ford un­ravel a con­spir­acy in All the Pres­i­dent’s Men.
