Politics in Cinema: All the President's Men

Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman are Washington Post journalists Woodward and Bernstein in the cinematic version of the famous Watergate scandal. Though Entertainment Weekly calls the film “a victory lap for American journalism,” the American politicians don’t come out looking too great. On Oct. 27, LSUS political science professor William Pederson will give the prescreening talk “The Top 5 Political Scandals in U.S. History.” Drama/History, 1976, 138 min., PG.
