Format: DVD
- that was how presidential Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler referred to the attempted June 17, 1972 break-in at the Washington, D.C. Watergate building in his initial comments on the event. Not worthy of further notice, although "certain elements" might try to "stretch this beyond what it is." Ziegler would come to eat his words several times over when, as a result of the Pulitzer Prize-winning reports by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, one senior government official after the other lost his post to the prospect of exchanging suit and tie for prison garbs, until at last even President Nixon himself was compelled to resign from the office which, as he'd declared only shortly before, he had "no intention whatever of ever walking away from."
Based on Woodward and Bernstein's bestselling book and released only two years after Nixon's resignation, "All the President's Men" chronicles the two reporters' investigation of the infamous money trail leading from the burglars' court arraignment and notations in two of their notebooks to White House Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman and to a conspiracy which, as the reporters would discover, went far beyond a simple attempt to plant bugs at the national Democratic headquarters, and was chiefly engineered through the Republican Committee to Re-Elect the President (appropriately acronymed "CReeP"). While the events are somewhat streamlined and not all of the individuals actually involved in the conspiracy are mentioned - wisely so, as even the information that *is* given takes either several viewings of the film or a close reference to the underlying book to be fully digested - the movie faithfully depicts the events as they are described in the two reporters' account.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The film itself is well-known, and is the true story of the second burglary and bugging attempt on the national HQ of the US Democratic Party, which took place in June 1972, and was organised by President Richard 'Tricky Dicky' Nixon's top aides, and almost certainly the President himself, The film also touches on numerous other crimes carried out by Nixon's team. The story is told from the point of view of the two journalists who uncovered the truth, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who were both junior Washington Post reporters, and significant parts of the dialogue in the film are taken verbatim from their book of the same name. It really only covers the first 6 months after the burglary, up to Nixon's d second inauguration, which is the period when the facts were being discovered and reported. It took another 20 months for Nixon to finally be forced to acknowledge the truth, and resign - this period is shown only as a series of headlines coming over a teleprinter. The film features one non-actor in a brief but starring role: Frank Wills, the Watergate security guard who discovered the break-in plays himself.

The second DVD is far more recent, and much of it was made following the disclosure that one of Woodward's main sources of information was Mark Felt, nicknamed 'Deep Throat' in the movie, then No. 2 at the FBI, one of the institutions corrupted by Nixon, along with the CIA and the Justice Dept.

Format: VHS Tape
This dramatization of how it was discovered that the burglary of the Democratic Party headquarters at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D. C. was funded and directed by the Nixon White House is a lot better than it has any right to be. Given the tedious, non-glamorous and frankly boring leg- and phone-work that is often the lot of the investigative reporter, it is surprising that this is a very interesting movie even if you don't care two beans about the Watergate scandal. In fact, this is really more about how the story was put together than it is about the scandal itself. It is also a lot less political than might be expected.
It stars Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman as Washington Post reporters, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, and they are good, with excellent support from Jason Robards (Oscar as Best Supporting Actor) playing Post Executive Editor Ben Bradlee, and Jane Alexander as an innocent caught up in the machinations. But what makes the movie work is the Oscar-winning script adapted from the Woodward and Bernstein best seller by that old Hollywood pro, William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 1969, Misery 1990, etc.). What he does so very well, even though we know the outcome, is to establish and maintain the tension as Woodward and Bernstein run all over town chasing leads and misdirections. He accomplishes this by putting just enough varied obstacles in the path of our intrepid reporters, notably the Washington bureaucracy and the understandably cautious senior editors at the Post.
The direction by Alan J. Pakula (Comes a Horseman 1978, Sophie's Choice 1982, etc.
