All the ‘Men’ get together again

Watergate days relived at screening

Just a few months after the unveiling of Deep Throat, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein and Ben Bradlee came together to watch their Watergate days play out on the bigscreen during a special presentation of 1976 pic “All the President’s Men,” hosted by the Tribeca Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Institute.

After, the trio took part in a Q&A moderated by Charlie Rose, who, due to the John G. Roberts Supreme Court nomination, made a quick getaway to tape a live show.

Woodward recalled what it felt like to have Robert Redford portray him in the pic. “You have no idea how many women I disappointed,” he said. “During that period I could get a date with almost anyone on the telephone. Tonight, sitting next to me was my 8-year-old daughter, who midway through the movie whispered in my ear, ‘He doesn’t look at all like you.’ ”

According to Bernstein, there was only one aspect missing from the film. “The real hero of this thing is Katharine (Graham). “That is the one thing that is not in the movie enough, perhaps, is how the paper was being threatened financially by the Nixon (people).”

“For a long time before we saw a script we wondered about who would play Katharine,” Bradlee recalled. “If we were being particularly nice to her, we would tell her that we were working overtime to get Betty Bacall to play her, but if she gave us any trouble — does anybody remember Edna May Oliver?”
