Summary
This feature documentary tells the fascinating story of one of America{u2019}s most influential and celebrated newspaper editors, utilizing rare home movies and photos, archival material spanning over 70 years, interview footage with family and colleagues, and voice-overs of passages from Ben Bradlee{u2019}s 1995 autobiography A Good Life: Newspapering and Other Adventures, to chart the career and personal life of a man who freely admitted he had been 2dealt an awfully good hand.3 A Harvard-educated scion of a prominent Boston family, Bradlee found himself at the center of many of the 20th Century{u2019}s most seismic storms, including: World War II (he was a Navy officer in the Pacific theater); the ascension and assassination of John F. Kennedy (Bradlee and his wife were extremely close with Jack and Jackie); the First Amendment fight to publish the Pentagon Papers (detailing secret strategies of the U.S. military in Vietnam) in The New York Times and Bradlee{u2019}s newspaper, The Washington Post; and the fall of Richard Nixon after the Post{u2019}s electrifying Watergate revelations. As a result, Bradlee was cast as the country{u2019}s most prominent (and possibly only) celebrity newspaperman, apologist (he had to admit a 1981 Pulitzer Prize-winning Post story was bogus), and elder statesman preaching the gospel of good journalism: 2not to be loved, but to go after the truth.3
