It s a behind-the-screen look at the tyrants of television and what they ve done to us - writer Paddy Chayefsky s savage satire, Network. Peter Finch gives an unforgettable, Oscar-winning performance as Howard Beale, the man who goes from dispassionate newscaster to national folk hero with his famous battle cry, I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore! Network is also the story of the fierce fights for power among the network officials. Finch plays a top TV anchorman who announces one day that he ll blow his brains out in prime time, for the sake of the ratings...Faye Dunaway as the vicious Vice President of Programming, William Holden as the News Division President and Robert Duvall as the cold hatchet man for the corporation all participate in glorifying its star - and in his ultimate destruction. In addition to the Oscars for Best Actor and Screenplay, Network has achieved top honors for Faye Dunaway as Best Actress and Beatrice Straight as Best Supporting Actress.
