Details

Classic US satirical comedy

Ageing television presenter Howard Beale (Peter Finch) is on the edge of a mental breakdown when he is fired. He decides to open his heart to his audience, breaking down live on TV. Incredibly, this boosts his ratings, and Beale is re-hired and given his own show on which he can scream and shout.

The film won three Oscars, with Paddy Chayevsky winning an award for the Best Original Screenplay.
