Watch Winchell - Alternative Versions.
In the 20's, the controversial New Yorker journalist Walter Winchell
(Stanley Tucci) begins his career writing gossips about his
acquaintances. He is hired by the New York Daily Mirror and using
inside information from informers, he becomes the first American gossip
columnist. He becomes successful and is invited to host a successful
broadcast show in the radio. In the 30's, he attacks Adolf Hitler and
befriends President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Christopher Plummer). After
the World War II, Winchell attacks the communists and becomes a
collaborator of Senator Joseph McCarthy. Winchell is not able to adapt
his show to the audience of television and when McCarthy is censured by
the Senate, Winchell becomes unpopular and his career virtually ends.
"Winchell" is a good HBO movie about the polemic columnist Walter
Winchell, who was feared by the powerful and famous in the 30's and
40's. Along the years, Winchell hires a ghost-writer, Herman Kurfeld
(Paul Giamatti), who admires him and has a lover, the showgirl Mary
Louise "Dallas" Wayne (Glenne Headly) that likes him. Winchell is shown
as a manipulative man that uses his personal dossier to force people to
provide inside information for his column and his radio show; a man
that neglects his family and has a wrong move supporting the
McCarthyism and denouncing people. In the end, he pays a high price for
his mistakes, and is forgotten by the public opinion He ends his life
alone, without family or friends, and his son commits suicide. The last
scene with his mentally disturbed daughter attending his funeral alone
is one of the saddest conclusions of a film (and a life) that I have
seen. Stanley Tucci gives one of his best performances in the role of
Winchell. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "O Poder da Notícia" ("The Power of the News")
