All the President’s Men

One Show Only! Sunday, Nov. 4 at 7:00 p.m. Free Admission!

Woodward and Bernstein? White House “plumbers”? Watergate? With Bob Woodward coming to Colby College Nov. 11 to receive the Lovejoy Award for journalism, there’s no more entertaining way to learn about and/or revisit America’s biggest political scandal and see Woodward’s role in “the greatest reporting effort of all time” than the 1976 thriller, All the President’s Men. Based on the bestseller by Woodward and Bernstein, it stars Robert Redford as Woodward, Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein, and Jason Robards in an Oscar-winning supporting role. Called “the most devastating detective story of the century,” the film won four Academy Awards. Beforehand, Professor of History Robert Weisbrot and Railroad Square’s Ken Eisen will provide historical and filmic context. Sponsored by Colby’s Lovejoy Award selection committee, Cinema Studies and American Studies. R. 138 Min.
