PG-13 | | Drama, Thriller
A cover-up spanning four U.S. Presidents pushes the country's first female newspaper publisher and her editor to join an unprecedented battle between press and government.
Coincidentally, Benjamin C. Bradlee and wife Sally Quinn were Long Island neighbors of Steven Spielberg for many years, and they knew each other socially.
There's a fella I overlapped with at RAND. He was a bit of a showboat; but, smart. And he worked for McNamara and he had opinions on the decision-making that went into Vietnam.
Ben Bradlee: Okay.
Ben Bagdikian: The word is, he doved. Pretty hard.
Ben Bradlee: Would he have access to the study?
When McNamara's plane lands in Washington towards the beginning of the movie, and he meets reporters to answer questions, there is a sign on the wall behind one of the reporters that says 'United States Air Force - Fort Andrews'. The Air Force doesn't have forts, they have bases - the correct designation would be 'Andrews Air Force Base'
