Summary As relevant today as it ever was, Sidney Lumet's brilliant, multiple Oscar-winning satirical exposé of the men and women behind the television networks stars Faye Dunaway, Peter Finch, William Holden, Robert Duvall, and Ned Beatty. When Howard Beale (Finch), the dean of newscasters at the United Broadcasting System, is forced to retire, network executive Max Schumacher (Holden), Howard's best friend, must deliver the bad news. Beale can't stomach the idea of losing his 25-year post as anchorman simply because of age, so in his next broadcast he announces to the viewers that he's going to commit suicide on his final program. Network head Frank Hackett (Duvall) advocates kicking.
