Network is one of those movies that stays with you years after seeing it. Its legacy is enshrined in the story of anchorman/"Mad Prophet" Howard Beale, as played by Peter Finch. Paddy Cheyefsky's script about Beale and the network he works for proves eerily prescient about the television business, even 35 years after; the screenplay won an Oscar, as well as acting statues for Finch; Faye Dunaway; who played cutthroat executive Diana Christensen; and Beatrice Straight, who played the wife to William Holden's Max Schumaker.
