About Good Night and Good Luck


Edward R. Murrow's signature sign-off provides the title for George Clooney's film homage to the legendary journalist and anchorman. Shot cinema verite style in a re-created 1950s newsroom, the film chronicles the building tensions and eventual showdown between Murrow (David Strathairn) and Senator Joseph McCarthy during the nation's anti-Communist hysteria. Murrow saw television as an instrument that could "teach, illuminate, . even inspire," but saw that it was being used instead to "distract, delude, amuse and insulate" the American public, specifically in relation to the witch hunt being conducted by McCarthy and his House Un-American Activities Committee. Murrow and his dedicated staff - headed by Joe Wershba (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Fred Friendly (Clooney) elected to defy the corporate sponsors and examine the unethical tactics used by McCarthy. In doing so they attracted the senator's wrath, and Murrow himself was even accused of being a communist. Despite this, and operating in a climate of fear and repercussions, the CBS crew remained steadfast in their mission to bring the truth to the American viewing public.
