Good Night, And Good Luck : - Written by George Clooney and directed by George Clooney, Good Night, And Good Luck takes place during the early days of US broadcast. It chronicles the real-life conflict between television news pioneer Edward R. Murrow (David Strathaim) and Senator Joseph McCarthy. With a desire to report the facts and enlighten the public, the groundbreaking Murrow, and his dedicated staff, headed by his producers Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba (George Clooney and Robert Downey Jr.) defy corporate and sponsorship pressures to examine the lies and scaremongereing tactics perpetrated by McCarthy during his communist 'witch-hunts'. In this climate of fear and reprisal, the CBS crew carries on regardless and their tenaciousness eventually pays off when McCarthy is brought before the US Senate. Their legacy has remained intact and even reverberates today as the standard for high quality broadcast journalism.

David Straithairn (Bourne trilogy) a superb actor... worth the dosh for his performance alone.

How did Hamburger Hill get in there? I saw that at the cinema about 20 years ago.
