Brilliant writers, tribunes of the working class, and icons of the lost world of newspapering, Jimmy Breslin and his friend, Pete Hamill, personified New York City.
Swashbuckling liberal columnists for the New York Daily News, they brought passion, wit, and literary merit to their brilliant reporting about their city and the larger nation. HBO’s new documentary, directed by veteran journalist Jonathan Alter and Emmy-winning filmmakers John Block and Stephen McCarthy, plunges us into their world, spotlighting their unique take on many of the historic events of the second half of the 20th century. Alter is joined by Pete Hamill, Ronnie Eldridge (widow of Jimmy Breslin), and legendary journalist Nicholas Pileggi to share clips and insights.
