New York Film Locations

 





Network (1976)

In 1975 terrorist violence is the stuff of network nightly news programming and the corporate structure of the UBS television network is changing. Meanwhile, Howard Beale (Peter Finch), the aging UBS news anchor, has lost his once strong ratings share and so the network fires him. Beale reacts in an unexpected way. We then see how this affects the fortunes of Beale, his coworkers Max Schumacher (William Holden) and Diana Christensen (Faye Dunaway), and the network.
