Commemorating the 40th Anniversary of Watergate…
ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN
TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION
New Blu-ray™ Debuts November 12
Chock-Full of Special Features Including Robert Redford’s Acclaimed Emmy®-Nominated Documentary
“All the President’s Men Revisited”
Burbank, Calif. August 1, 2013 – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) commemorates the 40thAnniversary of Watergate this year with the release of All the President’s Men 2-Disc Special Edition on Blu-ray™ November 12. The film, based on Woodward and Bernstein’s best-selling book, won four Academy Awards® and was voted one of the top 25 “Powerful Political Thrillers” by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. Starring are Oscar® winners Robert Redford (Best Director - Ordinary People 1980), Dustin Hoffman (Best Actor in a Leading Role – Rain Man 1988, Kramer vs. Kramer 1979) and Jason Robards (Best Actor in a Supporting Role – Julia 1977, All The President’s Men 1976).
All the President’s Men Revisited, a landmark collaboration co-executive produced by Redford with Andrew Lack and narrated by the actor, has just been nominated for an Emmy® for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special. The documentary reveals secrets behind the scandal and brings Watergate to life with fascinating archival footage, shocking Oval Office recordings and compelling new interviews. Talking on film about the remarkable event is a “cast” that includes Redford, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, Dustin Hoffman, Jon Stewart and others. The New York Times’ Alessandra Stanley, writing positively about the documentary’s Discovery Channel broadcast earlier this year concluded, “Watergate is an oft-told tale that still has unopened chapters. All the President’s Men Revisited provides a lingering look at the best-known moments and at a few tantalizing ones left on the discard pile of history.”
The film All the President’s Men, of course, deals with the Watergate burglary and investigation that ultimately brought down Richard Nixon’s administration. This important chapter of modern American history is brought to the screen as a faithful adaptation of Woodward and Bernstein’s book chronicling the investigative reporting behind their Pulitzer-prize-winning coverage that changed the face of American politics and redefined the American presidency. The movie was nominated for a total of eight awards (1976); the four wins, in addition to the acting Award, included Adapted Screenplay (William Goldman), Art Direction (George Jenkins/George Gaines) and Sound (Arthur Piantadosi, Les Fresholtz Dick Alexander and James E. Webb). Alan J. Pakula directed; Walter Coblenz produced the film which also starred Jack Warden, Martin Balsam and Hal Holbrook.
