  1. The lives of Reed and Bryant, and Reed's writings, will always be of interest to historians and specialists in the period. It's not surprising that the names of a couple of journalists, however well known in their time, would fall out of the popular consciousness. It's lucky that their story made a good movie (well, an okay movie) and that Beatty wanted to make it. Much less likely that a major studio would venture on the project today, even with a big male star pushing it. I add my thanks for the article, pherank.

    Interesting. Reviewers have consistently noted that the plot is hard to follow unless you know the movie, so it's good to have another view.
