Best remembered for the line "I'm as Mad as Hell and I'm not going to take this anymore." I find this movie kind of interesting in that it was precient. The short synopsis of the plot is that we have a TV Anchorman who suffers a nervous breakdown and loses his mind, but due to various machinations at the Network, he is kept on the air until he is a ratings hit. Peter Finch, the only guy to win a posthomous Oscar at that point (and actually deserve it, unlike Heath Ledger) is truly great as Howard Beale. But then I look around the Television Landscape, and I see Olberman and Beck and a lot of other equally crazy people on the air, and I have to think, "You know, Howard looked relatively sedate."
