Best of Enemies

1h 27m Documentary, History, Politics 2015

AroView: Riveting account of the frequently explosive televised debates between the liberal Gore Vidal and conservative William F. Buckley Jnr. that transfixed viewers during the 1968 national conventions.

Buckley was a leading light of the new conservative movement, while Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, they believed each other’s political ideologies were dangerous for America. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed and a new era in public discourse was born.

“Both fascinating as a glimpse at the not so distant past, and provocative as an account of what arguably was an early step in the decline of political discourse on television. ” ~Joe Leydon, Variety
