Almost Golden: The Jessica Savitch Story (1995)
A Lifetime feature about Savitch.
Up Close & Personal (1996)
Michelle Pfeiffer & Robert Redford newsroom drama (romance?) has been uploaded to YouTube in chunks by PfeifferFlicks, starting here:
After you see it, read Roger Ebert’s review of Up Close & Personal and this Entertainment Weekly feature on the making of Up Close & Personal. If you have a chance, read John Gregory Dunne’s book, Monster: Living Off the Big Screen about what it took to get this movie made — in a form far from the much sadder life story that originally inspired it, that of troubled anchor Jessica Savitch.
True Crime (1999)
Clint Eastwood may be sleeping with his boss’s wife and breaking the new rule about smoking in the office, but he is still such a good reporter that he sees a flaw in a murder case in his first conversation about it… unfortunately, he is just being assigned at the last minute to cover the execution.
