Network

A film by Sidney Lumet
Starring Faye Dunaway, William Holden and Peter Finch

This film is absolutely everything Aaron Sorkin’s middling The Newsroom aspires to be. A struggling television network gives notice to longtime news anchor Howard Beale (Peter Finch) and, in retaliation, Beale sensationally announces on live television his intention to commit suicide on air. In doing so, Beale becomes a major TV icon and one of the most valuable assets to the network, being effectively rebranded “the mad prophet of the airwaves.”
