ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN
"Follow the money." Deep Throat's admonition has guided whistleblowers and reporters well in the 40-odd years since Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman starred as Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, uncovering the Watergate scandal in this enduring classic. The power of journalists to hold figures of authority accountable has waxed and waned over the years, but this film still stands as a paean to the power of a free press and the dangers of unchecked power. The all-star cast includes Hal Holbrook as Deep Throat, Jack Warden, Martin Balsam, Jason Robards, Jane Alexander, Ned Beatty, F. Murray Abraham and Watergate security guard Frank Wills as himself. DIR Alan J. Pakula; SCR William Goldman, from the book by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein; PROD Walter Coblenz. U.S., 1976, color, 138 min. RATED PG
