On Friday, January 10 at 7:00 pm, the public is invited to the Marion Music Hall for January’s Classic Film Friday Presentation, “All the President’s Men.” The event is co-sponsored by the Sippican Historical Society and the Marion Council on Aging, and is offered free of charge to the public. Based on journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s best-selling account of their Watergate investigation, “All the President’s Men” was one of the biggest hits of 1976. The taut drama boasts an all-star cast that includes Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Jane Alexander, Jason Robards, Jack Warden, Martin Balsam and Hal Holbrook.
While researching a story about a botched 1972 burglary of Democratic Party headquarters at the Watergate apartment complex, novice Washington Post reporters/rivals Woodward and Bernstein stumble on a possible connection between the burglars and a White House staffer. With the wary approval of their executive editor, the pair digs deeper, following a money trail that leads all the way to the top of the Nixon administration. Running time for the film is 138 minutes. For more information, contact the SHS at 508-748-1116.
