Their painstaking research found the trail leading higher and higher in the Republican Party and, eventually, into the White House itself and led to the downfall of Nixon.

Reputedly based on Allen and Keaton's real-life romantic-comedy it is a satire of social mores from LA to California, and discusses a bit of life, the universe, et al. find out more...

A landmark in the history of the cinema. The rise and fall of a newspaper tycoon driven by a childhood obssession - Randolph Hurst tried to have it banned! Unique in technique and narrative structure, if you only ever watch one 1940's movie this should be it. This edition is from a restored, remastered and generally souped-up print, with a heap of extras including a documentary on the wunderkind Welles and an analysis by, ahem, Barry Norman. find out more...

While the tension in the film obviously comes from the impending violence, the film's strongest find out more...
