Quotes

Bill O'Reilly: This is gonna embarrass you Wallace. So are you ready to be embarrassed? Playboy magazine wrote that Bill O'Reilly is the most feared interviewer since Mike Wallace. You were the driving force behind my career. I always tell everyone. "You got a problem with me, he's responsible. So if you don't like me.. you go to Wallace."

Now I know where Dominic West developed his American accent
30 November 2019 | by asc85See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this documentary, as the critical reviews for this were mostly positive, and I found Mike Wallace to have an interesting career. But the film basically was just a history of Mike Wallace interviewing people, with no cohesion, and no bigger picture. It would have been nice to hear how his colleagues thought of him, or how his son and TV journalist Chris thought about him, but there is none of that. I also thought it was a mistake not to caption during the movie which famous person he was talking to. That was revealed at the very end, and who cares at that point? Since I'm in my late 50's, I recognized almost everybody he spoke to without needing to see a caption, but people younger than me are going to recognize fewer people. And I was annoyed that there were no captions identifying people that I was unable to recognize.

Also, because they show his interviews from the 60's in black and white, there is lots of smoking going on...lots.
