The Candidate

Bill McKay (Robert Redford), California Democratic candidate for U.S. Senator, a man of integrity and ideals, will now let the great American political machine manipulate him. Because now he's got to win. Still timely after these many years, it's a sharp insider's view of how advertisers, press agents, pollsters and media czars converge on election campaigns and run them as they wish. Peter Boyle, Melvyn Douglas and Don Porter co-star in one of the wittiest political movies ever made. Academy Award-winner for Best Original Screenplay.
