Directed by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newburger. With Stanley Crouch, Sally Jessy Raphael, Al Sharpton, et al. Morton Downey Jr., the angry, inflammatory NYC talk show host who insulted his guests and espoused rabidly right-wing views during his controversial late 1980s TV show, opened the door for the obnoxious TV and radio blowhards of our own era. Downey’s spectacular rise and precipitous fall are chronicled in this new film. “This pull-no-punches portrait shocks and amuses with equal frequency.” –N.Y. Times. Cleveland theatrical premiere.
Filmmaker Daniel A. Miller will not be attending the screenings as previously announced.
