Rod Lurie on

All the President’s Men

Released 1976
Distributor Warner Bros.

One of the great newspaper movies. Even though today we know the identity of “Deep Throat”, Alan Pakula and William Goldman’s tense reconstruction of Woodward & Bernstein’s Watergate investigation still grips and surprises. Impeccably cast. Another movie that lost the Best Picture Oscar to…Rocky.
