Paley says he started in radio by buying WCAU, Philadelphia. CBS did not acquire WCAU until 1958, although it was a charter affiliate. Paley started by buying United Independent Broadcasters in New York, a struggling small network. See more »
A young Edward Herrman as Fred Friendly, Dabney Coleman picking up where he left off in "Nine to Five" in a non comic role. The Man from Uncle as FDR!
I sure don't remember a whole lot of Made for TV productions in the 1980s that were this good. Anybody who respects "Good Night and Good Luck" should go out of their way to see this. Made when a lot of people who still remembered the story line intimately were still alive and they didn't fudge on anything. I don't think there is a better representation of what it was like from the inside to go after McCarthy out there than this.
Completely agree with all the previous comments about the portrait of the dawn of the TV industry too. How THAT world has changed since this film was made?
