Mike Wallace Is Here

Starts Friday, August 16 at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. Tucson

“Mike Wallace Is Here offers an unflinching look at the legendary reporter, who interrogated the 20th century’s biggest figures in his over fifty years on air, and his aggressive reporting style and showmanship that redefined what America came to expect from broadcasters. Unearthing decades of never-before-seen footage from the “60 Minutes” vault, the film explores what drove and plagued Wallace, whose storied career was entwined with the evolution of journalism itself. (Dir. by Avi Belkin, 2019, USA, 94 mins., Rated PG-13)”

  1. Remember when Mike Wallace interviewed Richard Kaffenberger in South Tucson over the lawsuit concerning the police shooting? Supposedly Wallace asked a question and Kaffenberger pulled a screw out of his drawer and said that is what is happening to South Tucson. The legend is, Wallace and the production crew burst out laughing, but that Wallace did not use that in his piece.
