Mike Wallace Is Here (PG-13) Genre: Documentary Runtime: 1:30

For over half a century, 60 Minutes' fearsome newsman Mike Wallace went head-to-head with the world's most influential figures. Relying exclusively on archival footage, the film interrogates the interrogator, tracking Mike's storied career and troubled personal life while unpacking how broadcast journalism evolved to today's precarious tipping point. “A compulsively engrossing account of a career notable for its gutsy, confrontational attitude toward the power brokers in business and politics.” –Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.
