Movie Info

Paul Newman co-produced and starred with wife Joanne Woodward in this earnest political drama. Newman plays a world-weary transient who ends up hosting a radio show at WUSA, a super-conservative station in New Orleans. At first he cares little about its views, glad only to have a job until he discovers that they are using him in a reactionary conspiracy to overthrow the government.more

It's too bad that the execution of this Paul Newman starring film is so poor for it raises some interesting social and political issues

...serves as a nostalgia-inducing oddity, a kind of scrapbook of American sensibility at the end of the 1960s, a time when there really were people ... who believed we were on the brink of revolution

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

... the film hammers home its politics with blunt force yet leaves the conspiracy drama vague, more symbolic gesture of outrage than convincing plot.
