This is a telling of the Jessica Savitch story, the newswoman who, in the 1970's, became the "First Woman Anchor". Sally/Tally is taken under the wing of Warren in a Miami newsroom and becomes a news star on TV. Despite her love for Warren, she takes the big chance and moves on to Philadelphia, where he follows to rescue her faltering career at the cost of his own - as she rises he falls. Written by

The photo of Michelle Pfeiffer as Miss Sierra Logger that she shows Robert Redford at the airport is an actual photo of Michelle Pfeiffer from her beauty pageant days. She took part in and won Miss Orange County 1978. See more »
The idea that a reporter's name can be changed (from Sally to Tally) at the last minute via a script on the teleprompter is preposterous. A seasoned anchor like Marcia would see it, assume it was a typo, and say the original name. See more »
Why didn't we do this before?
Because it was always gonna be this hard to stop.

Wow was this movie ever a stinker. I realize its a chick flick but the melodrama was laid on pretty thick. I'm so sure Redford's character would have all that time to spend with Pfeiffer's. As if he has no one or nothing else to tend to in his busy career. She just strolls in and basically becomes his pupil. He believes in her. Right! The convenient circumstances begin to pile up in the first hour making the second hour quite unbearable. Just about the entire movie is implausible. It really meanders when they have Redford's character reporting on the war. The romance is so forced that there was never a chance for any chemistry to develop naturally on screen. I realize its a movie but I didn't buy any of the happenings for a second.
