As timely now as when it was released in 1976, Peter Finch’s impassioned on-air breakdown as a fed-up news anchor in NETWORK (1976) earned a place among the American Film Institute’s ranking of the greatest film quotes of all time – with the film itself appearing on AFI’s original list of the greatest American film, and again a decade later on the 10th anniversary edition. Nominated for an Academy Award® for his performance in the film, star William Holden was named among AFI’s greatest screen legends.
