Did you like "Good Night and Good Luck"? Watch this. . .
A fantastic courtroom drama, a tremendous ensemble cast. The only problem is this wasn't made for theatrical release. Shot on video, either made for TV or some masterpiece theater type broadcast, it made up for it's production shortcomings with amazing performances by Asner and Travanti. The story centers around a journalist who has been labeled a Comunist by Boyd Bendix. Bendix, played by Travanti with intelligence and conviction, is scary in his ability to twist the truth for his purposes.
Edward Asner is equally as compelling as Attorney Robert Sloane in his search for the truth and for the exoneration of the "Blacklisted" reporter.
If you enjoy courtroom dramas, if you enjoy seeing a bit of what it was like during the "Red Scare", you will enjoy this work.
Now, would someone either release it on DVD or remake it for the screen?
