Movies With Murray

If you are a regular TOTN listener, you are probably familiar with the summer movie series, which is stretching into autumn this year]. The inimitable Murray Horwitz, Director and CEO of the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, joins us every now and then, to dig deep into a film genre (political documentaries and summer blockbusters, for instance) — or sub-genre (movies about bosses from hell, nuclear bombs, and movies about the movies, among other things).

At the end of our second hour, Murray will join us at the Newseum. (Rumor has it that Roy Blount Jr. may stick around, too.) The topic: movies about journalism. His Girl Friday! Shattered Glass! Capote! Broadcast News! Network!
