Not Rated | | Documentary, Biography, History
A documentary of the successful career and assassination of San Francisco's first elected gay city supervisor.
The film opens with acting mayor Dianne Feinstein breaking the news to the assembled press outside City Hall that mayor George Moscone and Harvey Milk had both been shot and killed by city supervisor Dan White. Gus Van Sant opens his biopic Milk (2008) with the exact same footage.
As president of the board of supervisors, it's my duty to make this announcement. Both Mayor Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk have been shot and killed. The suspect is Supervisor Dan White.
When describing Harvey Milk's murder, the narrator states that White killed Milk in Milk's own office, but in reality, White asked Milk to come into White's former office, closed the door, blocked it with his body, and shot Milk there.
